Found a new queen in one of the hives. Maybe virgin. She looked on the smaller side. In the process of marking her, I the plunger fell out and so did she. Look as I may, I could not see anything moving on the ground and I'm on sand with a few leaves. I'm sure I'm not the only one to have done this, so I'm wondering how many of you have done the same thing and if the queen managed to fly back to the hive? For me that would have been a short flight as I was standing behind the open single medium. Too bad the plunger didn't fall in the direction of the hive. BTW, she wasn't on the plunger. She was upside down on the mesh.
