This is fascinating! I've never been around bees before (other than bumble bees), and you make a daunting task seem easy (although I am sure a lot of knowledge and experience are involved). Thanks for the detailed description!
There was one really cool moment, about 20-seconds into the "Swarm Capture - Part 1" video where a bee flew right by you as you were filming! The sound of the bee's wings and the speed at which it was flying was amazing!
