Queen temperament

It's late winter, on a warm day for winter. I opened the hive lid of the first hive. Bees hardly noticed, the next hive the same thing, but when I lifted the lid of the third hive a thick cloud of bees flew up looking for something to kill. This hive has been this way since re-queening. I am just amazed at the differences in bee temperament.

The second hive although quiet is the first one up and the last one to bed. It does not get the sun first. They just seem to be harder working.
