Two Weeks In

True to my word, I left Hive 001 undisturbed for a week. I also stopped feeding the colony sugar as they seemed to be finding plenty of nectar out in the wild. When I opened the hive today, the bars were stuck to the hive with a light application of propolis:

Comb had been built on 8 bars, and the most recently built was being used to stash nectar and pollen:

Two bars in from that, I spotted the queen:

And further in there were two combs of brood:

It looks like they have everything well in hand.
