Bees - Adding a nucleus to a hive body.

So I got back on the horse and ordered more bees.  I ordered a nucleus or "nuc" for short.  This is an established colony of bees with a queen that is already laying eggs.  It's more expensive, $130-150 presently, but a little less work when it comes to establishing a hive, at least for the hobby bee keeper.  I picked them up early in the morning and brought them home.  I placed them on top of the hive body I planned to use and let them out for a while to get used to their surroundings.  Later in the day I actually placed them in the hive.  Enjoy the video!
