    .

    I'm not sure how common it is to witness several queens hatching within minutes, but I filmed a good portion of it happening yesterday:

    I was in the middle of a cut out when I started coming across queen cells. I cut them off the comb and ended up having two of them emerge right into my hand.

    You gotta wonder if the commotion helps precipitate it or we were truly lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
