    That almost looks like our first swarm! Only, bigger, I think.

    Glad to be back Idee! I missed you too.
    Little man is fishing every chance he gets, and dreaming about fishing when he can't go, or making lures to put in his new tackle box!

    Swarm #2 @ wives boss' house. Nice big one. Clipped a branch and dropped them in. No easier than that. Missed my beeclub meeting though :( Keyword "wives boss house". Get the easy brownie points when you can!
    1st sunny day in a long time. Came out of a hollow walnut trunk. They may have got flooded out due to the 4.5"+ in the past few days. I get to trap tree too!
