Swarm on face of hive

Came down early to prepare for training session and found this!

This is the third swarm that I have collected this week, all from different apiaries and all close to home hive. Although this is the closest 🙂

Note how the swarm has left the entrance clear and the colony within is coming and going as if there was nothing going on outside.
