I got my bees last night from the beekeeper, and this morning, when they were stilly dozy from the cool night, I moved them to the hive.

Within a couple of hours foragers were already returning with golden pollen, and they stayed busy with it all day.

I tried to see where they were going, but they would spiral up into the sky until I was too blinded to follow them.

I'll give them a few days to settle in before I open it again to meet the queen.
