Apiary Day 3

 The hives got smaller!
Last evening Gene and I removed the bottom hive bodies
that were holding the packages of bees.
The bees have now all left the packages and moved
upward to be with their queen on the frames of wax foundation.
 This is the southern hive around 10:30 a.m.
The bees are becoming active,
coming in and out of the entrance.
 The northern hive at the same time was a little busier today.
Yesterday the southern hive became active earlier.
 The ladies let me get fairly close.
 Today they're doing some orientation flights.
I hope Indiana suits them.
