2nd swarm capture this year
« on: May 23, 2011, 09:57:46 PM »
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!

Really love them card board nuc boxes man sure are light and easy to use.

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.. 8)  I will try if I ever get a swarm call in time.
Bees are the key to life as we know it.

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.

I am posting just so my red umbrella avatar can be next to your red umbrella avatar. I wanted to see how it looks together.
