Schawee, the end of that video is about the coolest thing I think I've ever seen. The time lapsed video portion was the best. Thanks a ton for putting that together. Simply awesome!

Well Schawee, just make sure JP has got the camera Rollin and make sure he gives you a turn with the red umbrella. :-D

The fast frame of the bees marching into the hive was a real treat. Thanks for sharing.

An 8 pound swarm! Wow!

Videos like this make me jealous that I'm not getting any swarm calls . . . .
