Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone !!!

I have a quite simple and interesting question out of curiosity - I don't think something is wrong with my hives, but behavior is different.

Originally I was suggested to keep robbers screens on and to me it is just on the way of bees to keep the hives clean, but my question is about activities of bees.

My both hives are identically the same and they put west-east next to each other facing to the north.
Bees at west side are more active, "wake up" earlier then bees on east side.

Any opinions about this? Is this really related west-east location ?

PS: :( somehow pictures shown up side down :(

Many factors dictate bee activity. Light, temperature, population, needs, and even habituation. So it could be related to location but may not be. I only express concern when a radicle rapid change in behavior occurs. As that can indicate a possible problem.
