Olathe Park swarm capture
« on: June 12, 2013, 12:07:44 PM »
Haven't seen many videos this year. Figure JP, schawee, Scott & Peg must all be busy, so here is a swarm catch from last week.

Very amateurish.

Nice video Don. Looking forward to your final video of this swarm.
The last 2 videos are the same. :)
That does look like a heavy swarm. They tighten up in the rain.

Good job Don! That was a beaut! I've been posting videos on youtube but they just haven't been making their way over here. I've got another 5-6 that haven't been edited yet...too little time!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Good stuff Don.  I just got back from 10 days at Boy Scout camp (Bartle).  Surprised I didn't get any swarm calls.  I had told my wife to forward them to you if they were on the KS. side.

Nice vid!

BTW, what kind of grass is that? Nice, green and lush!
