It's about 46 degrees here and rained last night, very windy. Went to do a check and seen a few from both colonies flying. One wished to check me out as I was wearing a black heavy coat. The hive top feeders had dry sugar in them since November and was doing well in both. It had a slight candy film on the top with a few casualties in there and I picked them out. A couple bees where drinking from the water stations and their area has the enclosure to keep the gusty winds to a minimum. They just fly around in that "Dome" so to speak.

My question is: On the bottom board amongst a few casualties, there's a crumb like consistency of something. Could this be the cappings to the honey as they consume their reserves ?
