Capped Honey and Eggs

This is a frame of bees from Hive number 1. There are many things that can be seen in this picture. At the top of the frame and around to the right you can see the white capped honey cells. The bees pack honey around the outer edge to create an oval brood area. The yellow cells you see are full of pollen. If you click on the image to view in original size you can see the little rice grain looking things in the center of some cells. Those are eggs. When you inspect the hive you look for these eggs to ensure your queen is actively laying. Sometimes they are very hard to see but when looked at through the camera lens its pretty easy!
