checking my hives after 1 week

Honey Bees

Two hives, two queens. I opened up my hives a week after
installing my packages (new bees) to check on them today. I was relieved
that I was able to identify queens. I ordered two marked queens, but
one had lost her marker and I was surprised to see her looking plain but
different from all the rest.

My bees are so sweet and calm. I have spent a lot of time watching them,
close up and at a distance, and no stings (yet). I found I cannot
trigger my cell phone camera button with my bee gloves on, so I work one
handed – one glove on one off and can take pictures. Aren’t they
beautiful!!
