Bees

All of the work these little guys have been doing is pretty impressive!!!
You'll notice from this round of pictures how they organize their brood and honey/pollen/water storage in an arch on each frame.  The yellow caps and open cells contain brood, the whiter capped cells contain honey.


See the drone that is just hatching out of the cell?


Isn't this amazing?!  All the orangy cells have pollen in them.  Everything that is capped is honey.  This is their storage for winter.

I was very happy to see that their population has exploded :-)
