I caught this swarm 7 days ago and was suprised they have drawn out half of the frames. *Is that my queen in the upper right 1/4 of the frame?

Hard to tell if you cannot zoom in. Look for the royal court, about 5-6 standing around her facing her.
Swarms do tend to draw out faster. I don't see the queen, but she might be there.

For reference, here's a picture I snapped of a queen and her court in one of my hives last week: http://img130.imageshack.us/g/dsc03711z.jpg/

Best of Luck!
Great picture!!!
Thanks! It was only my second hive inspection, but they sure had plenty for me to look at!
Swarms are comb drawing machines....it is what they are primed to do.
