Swarm of today

It was hard to capture the image but you can see the bees above the hive. Normally they shoot in and out of the front and you wouldn't see so many above and on top. They shot into the top white super after Erik set it aside. I thought it was cool and interesting. They made two splits and then got this freebe hive, queen included to boot. The other two Erik is raising queens from young brood and bees/honey he placed in with. I think he used a queen cell from one of his other hives in this so technically the one may not need to raise a queen. Yay!
