The Beehives

So I haven't mentioned much about the bees lately...to be honest there isn't much to say.

The bees have however been very busy foraging and making lovely honey...I will soon be taking some supers off to spin it out...for now though here are a few pics of the hives!!

Some honey supers being drawn and filled.

A full honey super weighs about 20lb!!

A frame out the brood box, all the filled cells
you can see will soon have bees hatching
out of them!

The hives closed up!

Approaching the bee hives.

Guard bees!!
