Got a swarm call today... from my wife.

Here's the pic (sorry my camera sucks... I can not get it to focus correctly anymore.  I'm not sure if there's a piece of dust inside the lens that it's focusing on or what, but it is annoying to say the least):



My first thought was "Oh S--- they musta come from one of mine"... so after suiting up the first thing I did was check my hives... but none showed signs of having swarmed.  So then I was all "SWEET!  FREE BEES!"

cheers, free bees.
