Yes. Last year we had a wild swarm move into one of our empty hives

that's so freakin cool. I wonder how they decided it was the perfect place, was it the smell of old honey or something?

Yeah they probably scouted it out and were like "hey there's a bunch of honey and shit already here, let's move in". It's actually a pretty common thing for beekeepers to leave "bait hives" in trees in the hopes that they'll catch a wild swarm.

It was intense. I walked out of my room to get a drink from the fridge downstairs and as I passed by the door to the deck I heard a strange buzzing sound. I looked outside and realized there were thousands of dots in the sky and I was like "wtf???" so I opened the door and walked outside

As I opened the door I was surrounded by the sound of buzzing. Not very loud, but somehow my brain interpreted it like a huge rattling surface. Imagine a speaker that was 30 feet wide and 50 feet tall.

By the time I took that picture the swarm had already dissipated by 60-70%

The whole event from when I first noticed it to them all casually hanging out in the hive took maybe 30 minutes
