So without much adieu on July 15th they took off. Though not far. About forty feet into a small pine tree. Which we found soon enough. I had no interest in getting them back and offered them to the neighbor. She wanted them but could not get up into the tree to get them. So i had to go get them anyway. Grrrrr...

The best part is i now have a local queen in Heléna. All the better to get her through Winter with.
