A Morning With the Bees

Sunday morning was a beautiful day for a  hive inspection. The queen was located thanks to the orange dot on her back. Sometimes she's difficult to find among 50,000 other bees! The hive is looking active and healthy. There was plenty of fresh larvae and capped brood. That sounds gross, but it is a good thing. This was also the time to add on the second deep. I don't really know bee stuff, actually I have no clue. I'm just repeating what I hear from the "real" beekeepers. All I contribute is the photos and video. Anyways, it's a very interesting hobby for all of us involved.
