    Default Took this photo at my cousins hive, queen cell

    These are my cousins nice bees. I think they are so pretty! I like that you can see the little larva in the cell. I need to get some better equipment to photograph bees. This was just with my phone.

    I hope he'll get on and see this because I'm not sure! I think that he split this hive into a nuc already, and he didn't realize the queen was with the nuc. So I think he is letting them raise their queen. These bees were really nice though, really calm. But yeah, I'm not sure on the queen situation.

    I somehow missed this thread. I split them before these queen cells were made and screwed up in the process. The colony with the queen cells was suppose to be the queenright colony if I remember correctly. I took a frame with the queen on accident. I think everything is in the process of correcting it's self.

    In four days they will be capped and the hive will likely swarm... not much time left..
