swarm from honey super

I had added a honey super above an excluder while adding an upper entrance. The hive was a deep with 2 shallows on top. I moved 2 frames from one of the shallows into the shallow honey super to encourage the bees to move up.

Today I found a softball sized swarm near the hive. When I investigated the origin, I found an open queen cell on one of the frames I had moved up into the honey super. I obviously had not noticed eggs in the comb.

Has something like this happened to any of you before?
