My wife and I both believe we see larvae in this whitish jelly inside these cells. We're used to seeing larvae in clear jelly. When I open the picture in a program that lets me zoom in the curled larvae seem to really stand out.
Thoughts?

I don't know what you were looking at before, but all larva I have ever seen was in white jelly. I have never seen larva in clear jelly. The larva in the pic is normal.

clear bee food (very thin royal jelley) would have me scratchin' my head. perhaps it looked clear because the wax was newish?

Looks good to me, nice circular pattern, older, more advanced larvae in the center getting smaller as the queen worked her way out in a circular journey.
Frame gets 2 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: from me.

Ok. Thanks.. This is a new queen that the hive reared on it's own. This is the first sign that she has mated.
