    Default Was this an awesome stroke of luck....or what?! Short video

    Did I ever get lucky! I knew I would be away all afternoon so I decided to set the camera up at the entrance to one of the swarm traps. It isnít every day I catch a swarm. And then there are four traps so the odds are that even if I catch one thereís only a one in four chance Iíd have the camera at the right one. Four hours compressed into less than two minutes. I think it was an awesome stroke of luck!
    PS this one goes to swarm commander.

    I never had a camera and so always had to do it the hard way. I have spent many hours watching the scouts at a trap. I have seen two swarms come in. I have been ready to walk away cause it seems like the scouts dry up (which seems to be shown in your video) just to have them all come at once.

    I also have a lizard living in an empty hive on the stand with three hives. My lizard is brown though.

    The lizard in mine came out of the trap. I edited that part out as it was an hour earlier and I wanted to shorten the video. People don't want to watch a lizard lounging around on a landing board. I think this guy has been evicted.
