A robbery or an orientation flight?

Posted by on June 27, 2012

I took at a look at the hive at about 2pm today, and found a ton of bees buzzing around the entrance. Considering I rarely see more than 3 on the landing at one time, this looked more like a robbery in progress. But since I didn’t see a single dead bee after it had finished, and it lasted at least 10 minutes, could I assume they were doing figure eights on an orientation flight? I got my bees on the 13th – 14 days ago – so it’s hard to think this is a batch of brood that was just born and taking their first flight.

I wonder what it was?
