Swarm collection

It’s been very warm the last few days and there are lots of swarms happening around Sydney. I collected one in a tree yesterday; this is what it looked like before…

I returned after dark to collect the hive and had the pleasant smell of honey in the car all the way home so they must have drawn some comb and stored the honey they were carrying. It’s a much better smell than the remnants of smoker smoke that usually fills my car.
