    Default Drawing foundation question and picture

    What do you guys make of this? I pulled this frame from an upper deep to replace it with drawn foundation. It looks like the bees are not even drawing it out. They are just storing honey in the recesses and capping. Is that what's going on? Strange?

    The had some nectar in it, it was dry enough and no more nectar coming in so they capped it. Luckily this is rare, but it does happen at the end of a flow.
