bee colonies generally won't combine like that.  It's just an enorous hive that is probably leaving thier old hive, looking for a new hive.  probably had parasites building up in the old hive or mold or something like that so they are moving.   Hives inside a tree can become truly massive.

This is a joke. And one that should not have been created in the first place.
