Ok, I did a cut out in a junk yard today and tried to video it. First thing I noticed is that a tripod of some sorts is a must. Second, it would really be nice to have a camera person with you (I was flying solo today). Third, if you're covered head-to-foot with honey, and it's 97 degrees, you really don't have the time nor desire to mess around with the camera!

I got a very short vid of it...but as we all know...that can't be my first video post :-D

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Very cool video - nice swarm!  The ones I've picked up haven't been that big - but I'm happy so far with what I've got.

Sorry Irwin, my bad. Yep, Scott, you got a big wheel or a little pink bicycle with training wheels lying around somewhere?

Oh and head gear of some type is a must!  :-D
