Honeybees, Honeybees, Honeybees!

I picked up the second colony of honeybees yesterday and installed them into the other hive box.  The installation process went much more smoothly this time around, although I still made a bone-head mistake, which I can't even mention yet, still too embarrassed.  But the bees are in and I will go into the box tomorrow to remove the queen's cage and take out the box that the bees came in originally. 
I was able to take my first peek into colony #1's box, and they are making comb like crazy.  I need to read up on comb location, because they are making comb on the box cover, on the underside, and I'm not sure if that is going to be a problem down the line.  Picture of the comb to come.
