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! grin

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! grin
Does it have an external mic jack?
