Ongoing Apiary Tales

 Our weak hive lost her queen and just couldn't get its act together.
 Our strong hive, however, is doing a great job.
The white stuff along the top is capped honey.
The yellow-ish capped stuff in the middle is capped brood.
The cells that are uncapped and dark are pollen stores.
The cells that are uncapped with flecks of white are bee larvae.
Here's another frame from our strong hive.
We combined the two hives on Saturday to give the weak hive 
a chance to build up and survive.
