Insect invasion … what’s happening?

Bush with bugs

There’s a pretty little bush in the patio that constantly puts out bright yellow flowers.  The other day, I noticed a large swarm of black insects circling and zeroing in on one particular flower and branch.  The flittering crews covered their landing sites, some even settling in on top of each other.  Usually, these uninvited guests are swarming around the passion vine (that persists in trying to take over the entire patio), but this time they were in new territory.  I took a few photos, went to farmers market and came home.  When I returned, they were gone.  What were they doing there in the first place?  Laying eggs?  One of those great mysteries of life (in Costa Rica), I guess.
