G3 had called today to check on me and also told me he was going to respond to a swarm call.  I asked him if I could tag along, watch, and help out what I could.  On the way I picked up Aiden and headed to the Worlds Fair Park in Knoxville.  Turns out while George was collecting the swarm I looked across the street and saw another swarm.  Then found the bee tree.  Then the Park Officer, Larry, found another swarm above where we were standing.  3 swarms and a bee tree.

After finding that many George asked Aiden if he wanted some bees of his own.  Of course, Aiden said yes and we ended up bringing them home.  These were small swarms and we suspect that the queens maybe unmated. Time will tell.  

Thanks G3, for my sons first bees.

Looks like he's still pretty fearless after the sting. Great video.

yockey, I am not having any problems playing it.  I went to Youtube and checked as well.  Can't find any problems. 

grin   loved it.

Thanks you guys.  Glad you liked it.  His personality dries up just like mine as soon as you hit record.  We're working on that though. 
As far as the sting goes.  I think it was a dry sting.  His finger never swelled or anything thing.  He did complain of it for a while though.  I took two myself.  One just above the fingernail and the other on the neck.  Just didn't get them on video.  Oh darn.  Maybe next time. grin 

Thanks for the compliments.
