Bee Honeycomb Honeybee Insect Beehive
I noticed my hive was queenless and robbed a frame of uncapped brood from a stronger hive. I noticed a larger cell being made and when I checked today I noticed the cell was capped. Does this appear to be a queen cell? It seems smaller than the images I've seen while searching the web, but I'm not sure what else it could be. Bee Honeycomb Honeybee Pattern Insect

Classic emergency queen cell. Looks like the comb was soft enough for them to cut down into the side. The cell should extend back into the comb, rather than all on the surface, should be fine.
