Picked up another swarm late this evening, very dark looking bees...
Took a whack to my arm as i was in a rush to box them, do two wasp nests, then get back to pick them up. I say whack, more of a tingle compared to wasps stings.

Anyway as usual, photo oppurtunity

I was hoping for some dark bees from a swarm but so far just got more yellow bees.
