Nice job. And to think I spent Saturday at the tractor fair at Penn's Cave near Centre Hall.

Sincerely,

Brendhan,
Too bad I wasn't at the tractor show with ya,I really like to go to them! We always attend the show there the weekend after Labor Day.
 We could have used your ladder to get down from the roof of your truck to capture this one!All the swarms I've captured here have been down on the ground like this.Hope it stays that way! :lol:

The large swarm I'm not sure about. All the hives seem to be too populated yet to have lost that many bees. The small swarm may have issued from one of my hives. Or I got someone elses main and after swarm!
