Wasn't able to film the first one  :'( but i got this one as best as i could.  Really need to invest in a tripod that's for sure filming and shaking bees isn't easy.  Hope ya'll folks enjoy it!

One of my fav swarm catching videos had a white sheet underneath the nuc for easy viewing of any bees who defy gravity and don't fall in the box.. Cool  I will try if I ever get a swarm call in time.

Be nice to get a few more like that that's for dang sure easy as pie until you add the camera to the mix.  POV swarm capture that might be a new one.
