Please ID this mushroom. I see you all posting this one all the time. I finally found one on my property.

Well this is good news! After all most people don't realize the cheap honey they buy from the supermarket is not pure. You could call it "honey sauce" because it's got corn syrup. Pure honey is expensive. And pure honey is good for you.

I hived this swarm a couple days ago. It was outside of my reach; probably 15' off the ground. At the beginning of this AutoAwesome compilation G+ produced from my footage you can see the orange cordage with a weight tied to the end of it I used to throw over the limb and pull it down to where I could reach it. Hived it and took it home after the Sun set. 

My son and I checked on this hive in our apiary last evening. Bees were coming and going from the little front entrance. I will transfer these foundationless frames out of the cardboard nuc into a regular hive body this weekend. Then we will enjoy observing this wild swarm for behavior that we might want to raise queens from.
