Second installation of bees:

Hella bees in a box.

Homemade veil.

 Spritzing the bees with sugar water before putting them in the hive.

 Removing the screen...

In they go!

Brushing off some bees to check up on the Queen.
 
Attaching a card to the Queen cage so that it can hang between some frames more easily.

The Queen cage in the hive and the last frame about to be put in.

Done! Exhilarated!

All photos shown in this post were taken by Andrew Hinderaker, a very talented young photographer here in Brooklyn. You should check out more of his work at:
