This is the swarm I caught on May 3rd. Here is the bottom deep frame by frame.

The swarm hive on the left and the original source hive on the right.



After lifting the two mediums off, here is the first frame with little drawn on either side.




Here's frame 2. Starting to see a little capped honey on the second side:



Frame 3, more honey:

Frame 7: Lots of future bees.




Frame 8: Leaving the brood nest and back into honey.



Frame 9: Honey's getting sparse out here.



Frame 10: Mostly empty both sides.

I moved the 2 outer frames in a couple places to see if they draw them out. We still have a good flow here. The first medium was full of honey and brood. The second is about halfway drawn with honey.

I have seen her a couple times in this hive. I have 2 of her offspring. One in the original hive she swarmed from and one in a hive started from a nuc at the same time. Both seem to be doing well.
