Took a peek today and found a few things I am not sure about…
The deeps are mostly empty, at least the top deep—reserves used up over winter?
Found some white larvae (?) about 1/2” long and they turn to a puddle, almost, when touched.
Cells that have the caps raised and light brown. I’ve seen them before but never considered them.
And a large bee—likely a drone?
The pics are pretty lousy. Reckon a new camera might be in the future.
