Great video.  You're a better man than me JP.  I can't seem to ever find the queens in swarms.

Sometimes they aren't that easy. Good job finding the queen too.
What camera are you using in this video?

I know he has the go pro III, and he also uses his phone and another camera.
You all are suffering from swarm fever down there! :-D

Enjoyed the vid JP.  

Tefer, he stated in a YouTube comment that it is a Sony.

That was great fun JP. It reminded me of the first swarm I caught with you on the phone telling me to keep shaking them into the box again and again. I think I had a virgin queen as well. I had to shake them about 4 times before they stayed in the box.

Its a Sony HDR-CX260V and I love it! Wayyy better than the Cannon I had and I had several problems with the GO-Pro so I brought it back and got the Sony which was a great decision. Better low light and audio, mic is much better than the Cannon. Happy, happy, happy.

I noticed the difference the minute the video started. I'm shopping for one of those now.
My Go Pro got destroyed when it was ripped off the helmet by a passing tree limb.
Relatives have since been banned from the 4 wheeler and the dirt bike too! :-D
Does it have an external mic jack?
