An Oldie But Goodie

I was going through a bunch of files on my computer when I found this one. Last summer, my husband came hollering and running through the house -- yelling about a big cloud of black bees outside. Sadly, by the time I was able to get to the beeyard, they were gone.

At the time, I thought it might have been related to orientation flights, but in retrospect, I believe he witnessed a swarm. I had some queen cells in the hive, and there were significantly fewer bees in the days afterward.

In any case, I opened the observation window to see what was happening inside the hive. Obviously, I must have taken video, too, because I found it today.
