Now Ms Anette, I know you were busy holding up your red umbrella, keeping in the shade while Ray was drinking lemonade.

Look at the old man, he's tired and hurting, trying to strap the box tight.

I just received a call from the property owner, the bees have all come down out of the tree and are in the box. I'll be going up there tomorrow to bring the girls home with all my equipment that was left on the property. :D

was there any comb in that tree?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Nope, no comb in the tree. It was just a swarm.

Here is a clearer copy of the photo. Not very flattering photo of me with my eyes shut, also in a bee outfit 2 sizes to large for me. The home owner took the photo.

OK, drove over and picked up that swarm. It's a small one, only covers 2 frames. I'll probably just combine it with others here next week when the weather is nicer.
