They fell

The bees were in the tree, then a big gust of wind came and blew them down. What I thought was ground cover was actually a very low bush.  I had to balance on branches while trying to scoop them up. I got a big bunch and dumped them into the nuc. The queen was in that bunch and the rest started coming up to the box.  I gave them a little help by smoking them.
