I guess my nucs have settled down, and the cutout hive was always calm. I got back a few minutes after my crew pulled in, only to find them watching the returning foragers this evening. They said "it's like an airport there, all those bees coming home." Since they were maybe 6 ft from the hives, weren't suited up, or stung, I guess things are doing ok.

Gypsi

I remember seeing years ago a film of bees coming back to the hive crashing into the landing board and each other, with music and sound effects. It was funny. And long before Youtube.

Bees only got a couple of hours of sunshine today, and were coming home when I decided to inspect a hive, just as clouds started to gather again. Looking a bit crowded in that deep. They went from peacefully landing to attempting to deter my inspection. No stings. They just weren't happy. A couple of persistent ones buzzed me for 30 or 40 feet. I love my bees. I was sad when I lost my hive to robbers last year.
