Move a bee hive, a little at a time

The hive looks like it could be bearding on a hot summer day. However it was actually caused by moving the hive about 16″ to the right. I am slowly walking this hive to a new location about 15′ away. Every few days, 30 to 60 minutes after I move the hive all the returning bees have clustered at the top entrance. A short while later all the bees have moved inside.
