Another Shake
« on: May 17, 2010, 03:22:38 AM »
Unfortunately I had another swarm.  Not sure which colony it came from.  I think its an after swarm with a virgin.  I went from thinking I would never catch one to shaking two in two weeks.  Both withing ten feet from one another and both about three/four feet off the ground.  Weird.  My daughter is in the video.  Her mother will probably freak out when she sees this.

gotta love a curious child.  nice size swarm for an after swarm.  good catch!
.....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.....

Don't worry about her mother, worry about people who are scared to death of bees and just don't understand.  These are just one of the reasons I don't film my kid.  Today the 3 year old tipped over his 4 wheeler.   Mom saw us doing it.  And yes he had his helmet.  Same with the bees, you can't stop him.   Keep that girl close and raise her up right.  Great video.

Thanks for the warm comments.

I was supposed to get another yard a few weeks ago but the guys wife had a bird.  I heard she was worried about the grand kids.  I hope she sees the video, LOL!
