More Bees

Recently we had a swarm of bees on a peach tree here at the farm. 
I decided to lop off the whole branch and put the bees into an empty hive.

Here it is after I cut the branch from the tree.

After I cut the branch I carefully lowered the whole thing into the hive.

I left the hive there for the rest of the day so that any remaining bees could find their way inside, then moved it over to our place that evening. The next day I pulled out the rest of the branch and let them make themselves at home.
