Day 72: Becky's Bees

Becky, our neighbor, opened her hive up today.  She said there were over 40,000 bees in there.  I was able to get in real close with no problem.  The top photo is of Becky pulling out one of the honeycomb slats that is filled with honey and drone larvae.  In the lower photo, she is pointing to the Queen, which has the white dot on it.  The dot is painted on so she is easy to find.  It was amazing to watch all the bees working and how much honey they produced in just the past few weeks.
