One of the wonders of the world is the dynamic of a honey bee colony split (one too many queens). In my case some of the bees in my hive swarmed yesterday around 11 a.m.—they had already sent out scouts who had located a “home” in an oak tree about 20-feet from the main hive. The actual swarm started with a frenetic circle of bees about 15 feet above the hive. After buzzing for a few minutes, they jetted to the tree. I fired off shots in sports mode. This swarm was most likely triggered by a new queen who took her loyal supporters with her. The main hive, which has split four times in three years, remains vibrant.
