    Looks real good there Zookeep, showing us what we are missing here in the colder weather. Here I know one hive made for it got to 44f yesterday and 50f today and they were out flying around everywhere close to the hive, the other one saw no active at all from it, suppose to be up to 57 tomorrow so I am going in to see if they made the cold weather, hope so.

    Great pictures Zook. It looks to me like you should be on the alert to prevent swarming in the coming weeks---unless you want them for increase.

    The thickness of comb #1 is impressive and the picture #4 is an incredible brood pattren the populations are going to explode in population. Great photos Zookeep thanks for sharing.

    As an brand new beekeeper your pics are great! I have studied the above pics looking for drones and at workers. The egg picture was amazing. I hope I can find them that easy this year! Please keep posting pictures....very helpful for a newbie.
