I know I would have been going crazy if this had happened to me. Gotten out my camera, taken some pics and video....only to watch her fly off into the sunset. Lol. I had a virgin queen fly off on me once and boy was I not happy with myself for being greedy and trying to get a picture of her. =( Don't recall if she ever found her way back to the hive or not. I certainly lost sight of her. =(My buddy and I were checking his hives today since he's had 4 swarms this week. We had pulled a frame and were looking at a queen cell when she broke through and marched right into the rest of brood box. Pretty awesome sight for a newbee.
