Got me again!

One of the ladies got me again. Stung me thru the pants. I think I need to get a full bee suit so I can increase the distance. Or get a smoker. Which I'll do, going to order one soon. I was trying to reverse the deeps, but the hive was FULL of bees. Must have been 16+ frames of bees. The top deep had 5 frames of brood and I wanted to move them down. But the slope makes it hard to move deeps, so I was moving just the frames. I got one fame moved and a little sister stung me right above my left knee. I ended up putting the hive back together, then putting an queen excluder a super on top (after spraying the frames with a 1:1 super water solution). We'll see how that goes.

Here's a picture of my first bit of honey draining:
