I would have thought with that wind whipping so much that your shook ones would take longer to 'wake up' and march in. - that was cool to see - it was like a shot going through them the way they all turned for the hive. nice video.
be happy and make others happy.

Nice one Schawee. Loved the march in.

You sure are living right. Did you buy a lotto ticket after that bit of luck?  :-D

Nice catch Bro! Good sized one.

Scott
"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."

Was it from one of your hives?
