hiving a honey bee swarm

I've only ever shot one video with me DSLR so am not at all familiar with video. I read the manual last night so it was fresh in my mind. I set up the camera and gave it to a friend to use as I captured this swarm from one of my hives this morning. I think I'll be using this feature more often. Seems like a lot to learn. Canon MKV mark III, 24-105L, uploaded direct to youtube.

Thanks. Do they sting when you are handling them? Looks like you are putting them in a cardboard box. Now how do you get them into a hive?

These were very calm. That is a full size wooden hive box.

Thanks. Very interesting. We had a wild hive near our house for years. After the brutal winter we had last year I have only seen two honey bees this summer.
