It was in a fallen tree. When I cut a window into the hive, I saw and captured the queen within 30 seconds. Couldn't believe that. They are now in the bee yard being fed and encouraged. Good start.

Well done! After almost two years doing cutouts I just did my first drop and chop tree job on Friday. It went great as well. I didn't spot the queen right away like you, but she was on the first chunk I cut out and I could tell by the activity on the piece. I just went on about cleaning up the rest and then went and caged her. Nice and easy!
