Love catching them swarms folks! Left the camera at home so filmed this one with my iphone. A little Blair Witch like but I think it turned out fine.

The ones that are twenty feet up with virgin queens and pissy bees make you appreciate the ones like these.  :-D

That was fun. I like the photos at the end of the people behind the door. You make it look so easy, as usual. How the heck did you find the queen in this one??

It took a few minutes to find her Annette. I believe I wound up taking most of the frames out and she was on one of them. I searched the box a few times and could tell she was running from one end to the other covered in bees and she decided at some point to move up on one of the frames with the black Pierco.
