The swarm went back into original hive

This morning I saw a swarm of bees coming out a hive and I knew they were about to leave, so I kept watch on them to see where they would land. They settled on a holly tree limb that is also in my yard. I prepare to get a box ready and my bee suit on and when I went to capture them, they were buzzing the hive they just came out of and went back into it. Is this common?

this is absolute proof that the will do what ever they decide to do. ????
The queen didn't go with them, but keep an eye on them, she probably will the next time.
