Bees are most active at the entrance during late morning till mid afternoon. Bees making the transition from nurse bees to foragers will explosively emerge in mass in the mid afternoon hours and perform their orientation flight in front of the hive. Depending on brood population/weather/season, it can be a spectacular sight to behold. Also, one can sometimes tell what flora is available by observing the color of the pollen sacs on the legs of returning bees.
Why the honeybee is so important to everyone.
Another interesting and great video of bees.
