Here are my photos from my first inspection.

My hive is from a nuc installed 12 days ago
I have some questions….Here is one inherited farm and one new frame.

In general I believe I am seeing eggs a capped broad. I expected to see more pollen/nectar/honey. Is this a good frame pattern?





What do I do about the comb the ladies are building across the bottom?



And finally is this my queen!!??

That is exciting for the first inspection!! Any insight on the comb across the bottom of the frames they are building? Should I be scraping it off? Any concerns over the frames I posted? Like i said I expected to see more pollen/nectar...or maybe I am missing it.

I'm fairly new at this so I can't offer any insights. I just like playing "Where's Waldo". It looks like that frame was sitting over another frame at some time. The comb on the bottom is bridge come if I am guessing correctly. It won't hurt anything.
