Apiary Week 9, Day 57

 I finally was able to spot one of our queens!
She's on the top of the comb beneath the cluster of bees on the upper frame.
 The bees decided to fill the frame with honey.  Okay then.
 This one is a picture perfect arc of honey above capped brood.
 The bees in the middle of this frame have already hatched.
Another nice frame.

Everything was going so well I split the hives back down to two 
and added a new brood box above the stronger hive.
I put frames with queen cells in it and am hoping we get a third queen in a couple of weeks.
