Bee Swarm 2 Collected

Last year we were very proud of ourselves for capturing a swarm of bees that were high in a pine tree. 
The other evening I was walking around the backyard when I noticed this cluster of insects in our apple tree.
 Here is Alden standing directly under it to give a sense of scale.
 We took one of our extra hives and shook the bees into it.
Most were contained (including the queen) the remainder of the bees made their way into the hive over the night.
