I inspected my hives this week and have some pictures if anyone is interested.
My wife is a photographer, so I set her old camera on a tripod and photographed both sides of every frame in the hives. (two double deeps) That was very useful, because I was able to go back and look at the pictures later more carefully. It has its limitations, of course, but it was helpful to be able to go back and look at my own leisure. I downsized the photos on the site. The originals are much higher resolution. I was able to spot eggs using the originals. If you have a good camera and tripod, I recommend the practice.
She, of course, takes pictures everytime I open up the hives. I go out all suited up. She comes out with just a shoulder veil on and starts snapping pictures. If the bees are not too riled up, she won't even bother with the veil. Every now and then she gets a visitor in her hair and runs out of the bee yard to dance around and shake it loose. Very entertaining.
