Sunday Morning Moisture At My In Laws

I finally got around to moving three hives i had at my in laws which i had placed near his pond. Great summer location and it looked nice, but horrible possibly moist location for the cool winter. So i moved them up the hill beside the chicken houses so that the houses blocked the Northwest Winds, plus they get all day sun and face south!!!

As you can see very little if any moisture at this point. The pictures were taken right around 8am Sunday morning prior to bee flight with temps in the mid 30's F...

Here are a few pictures of two different hives with my "darker" bees from queens i got from Mike Carney this year. So far i have been very pleased...
