Today I was able to muster up enough guts to actually take a frame out of my brood box. This is only my second time ever opening a beehive by myself.
So from the pictures you may notice that I actually bought somebody's split. I'm not so impressed with it but it's mine now so I will clean it all up nice.
With this first picture I can see that the queen is doing her job but there is still a lot of open cells. The queen is in this picture by the way, I didn't spot her when the frame was in hand but while looking at the pictures I spotted her.
Can somebody tell me what is going on in the upper right corner here?
Here's a picture of the other side of the same frame - to me it looks very nice! Lots of capped brood and some open brood too! I believe that is honey in the upper right corner - can anybody confirm this?
