    There is an angle change on the cells in the middle of the first picture. I haven't seen that that often especially on natural comb. Have to copy and add to my collection of photos.
    Thanks for posting ZooKeep

    Did you transfer her combs to frames or did you transfer the bees to your own built frames?

    I always take brood comb and some pollen comb in all removals because I never know till I see the queen if I got her, this way they can always raise a new queen if I missed or hurt her in any way.

    That is a very good point Zookeep especially if it seems to be local surviving stock with out treatment that is genital and a good addition to your genetic gene stock.
