    The open one pointing downwards is a queen cell cup. Nearly all hives have them if they ever decide to raise a queen they may use it then.

    Pretty sure the horizontal one is a drone. He's got plastic foundation, forcing the bees to build a much lower amount of drone comb than they would like, so anywhere they can get a few drone cells squeezed in, such as between top & bottom frames, they will, as in this case.
