The nature of bees.... swarming

Picture taken after my hive swarmed and landed up 40 feet in a tree close to the original hive, they are now at their most docile as they have neither a home or a food supply to protect. We have set up a trap hive underneath the tree where we hope they will migrate to soon before they take off somewhere we cannot locate them. Swarming is a natural healthy process of a vibrant hive, all the signs were there that is would happen and this morning it did.....
