Thanks for the nice welcome. Seems the swarm I've hived has a mix of light & dark bees. They seem to be pretty gentle, as clumsy as I still am with checking the hive, I haven't bothered too much with all the protective gear.
I've got 2 brood chambers, then 3 medium supers now above the queen excluder. Using 10 frames with pierco foundation. Got loads of nectar, but not much of it is capped honey. My hive is under a tree, so maybe it needs more warmth or ventilation?
Having a great time with my bees -- it's really neat to come home, sit outside & watch them for awhile.
I'm going to have lots of questions when it comes time to extract honey...
