I caught a small swarm this afternoon and snapped a few pics with my cell phone while holding up the nuc box waiting for them to move in.





I really like seeing how flexible their wings are in flight.

I lured them into the box with a nice swift shake of the branch! Naturally for backup I always dab a bit of dead queen juice in boxes that I am putting swarms into. After closing the lid I waited for the bees that missed the box to fly in the entrance and snapped the photos one handed while holding the box with the other near were the cluster originally was. Gotta love swarms 4' off the ground.
