3rd swarm of bees

I was out hunting cherries in the garden when I came across another swarm of bees in our back cherry tree:

 

It was completely wrapped around the trunk.  I could hear they were quiet angry too.   Our neighbour came over with a smoker and brushed them into a hive for us:

We got the queen and could see the rest of the bees marching in!

 

So we now have 3 hives!  We just need to move them where we want them (where is that exactly?) a meter every night while they sleep.
