coooooolll. Much diff than multiple eggs from a queen which I've seen before. They were "organized" looking and at the very bottom of cell, attached or touching at the end attached to cell bottom.

Thanks for the pic. Looks a worker so unless they are laying will be hard to find
A swarm in May is worth a bale of hay.
A swarm in June is worth a silver spoon.
A swarm in July isn't worth a fly.

Basically impossible.  There will be hundreds or thousands of laying workers in a laying worker hive
