Capturing a swarm of honey bees

My husband has been raising  honey bees for the last three years, but today he caught his first swarm without a swarm trap.  These bees were gathered up in a dogwood tree in our neighborhood in Blacksburg. They are now safely in a new hive at our house.  It was a milestone day for this new beekeeper!
