    Default there they go

    Nice strong hive that is marked to cut 3 nucs out of...getting a bit crowded last week but no obvious cells yet...
    Got a break in the near constant rain.
    several trips to the shop to get all the gear I need next to the hive.
    Last trip out with the lit smoker.....and just in time to watch the hive spew forth a big swarm, which of course settles 60+' up in a nearby maple.....why do mine always settle so high?

    Well, I still went ahead and busted the hive into 3 in the hopes of eliminating after swarms (has been a problem with these bees in the past)
    some very nice capped cells, several goofy long ones I wish I had had the camera.

    Ah well....
