    Default Hives are booming and found a queen

    I usually have good luck finding queens, but this is the first time I got pictures to prove it. All hives were heavy with brood and feisty. I am not ready to count my chickens yet, but I have a feeling this is going to be a good year.

    Nice pics nabber, I always like looking at photos of bees or equipment. She's a chubby little brod isn't she? Kind of squat and girthy, you should name her Helga. Maybe you could find someone to fashion up a little Viking helmet for her.

    Beautiful queen! Most of mine are that color, a few darker. I love those queens that are that color.

    Yeah, that golden color made her really easy to spot and she really stood out. You can even see her in the thumbnail pictures before you open the picture.
