    Default New Queen - does this look promising?

    We inspected a hive that swarmed just over 3 weeks ago today (saw a chewed queen cell 2.5 weeks ago), and while the population has definitely reduced in that time, we saw what I think are good signs that we have a new queen - capped brood on a handful of frames in the bottom brood box and lots of larvae - can anyone take a look and give their thoughts on whether this looks good? Thanks!

    Looks fairly good for a new queen I think she will be a keeper. Spring build up will tell the tale.
