Got a supercedure going on in one of my packages. Looks like things are progressing normally, with the 1st-queen-out killing the remaining queens in their cells.

In the photo, the emerged queen cell in the upper right has a perfectly circular chewed-off cap. The killed queen cell in the lower left has a side chewed out and you can see the underlying foundation through the hole.

Fantastic pic. Are those drone cells that have had caps chewed off too? Looks like they are too far advanced not to be capped already. J

I am thinking they are probably uncapped drone cells.

Pulled a frame like this a couple weeks ago, and while looking at the still capped but side chewed out queen cell, a fuzzy queen crawled out! Guess I saved her from immediate death and gave her a fighting chance.

Thanks for the compliments on the photo. All I can say is that the latest version of the iphone is capable if very nice photos without much skill by the user. :)
