Re: Weird hive inspection
It looks to me like a dry hive, no nectar, or not enough to count for anything. If the rest of the hive looks as dry as this, I'd say your queen went off laying and stopped brood production. You need to feed this hive more than anything else that I can see. If you have a queen in there and you start feeding, within 10 days you should see brood production start back up again. If you don't see any pollen stores in the hive as well then consider adding some pollen for them too.
