    Dandelions are in full bloom, drones are flying and I have several queen cups per frame.

    I split my one remaining hive today. Both brood and stores were split between two hives, the rest filled with drawn comb. She was found and placed in the "new" hive.

    I have two cutouts and a possible trap-out lined up in the coming weeks, but I'd still rather have more than one hive.

    The photo was taken with my phone! (Samsung Galaxy) I was quite pleased with the results!

    Samsung Galaxy rocks. I have the SII, but I am thinking of upgrading to the S IV. I hear that camera is really great.

    This is an SIII, so yes, if the IV uses the same camera, it will do well.
