At The River and Checking New Bee Hives

Got out early to the river, shot some panning blurs early of the pelicans. Then switched to shooting my normal stop action shots. Later photographed my wife checking the two new bee hives to see if the queens were laying. All looked good. A few pics with descriptions below. We will be heading to visit our kids and grandkids for Easter. Will probably not post again until Monday or Tuesday next week. Have a happy Easter…

All the yellow in the photo above are capped brood. The larva of the honey bees are developing inside. A few empty cells also in the picture.

The queen is laying eggs. The green dot of paint to make it easier to identify the queen. The little straight white lines in the cells to the right and below the queen are eggs.

Larva in the open cells and capped cells in the picture above.

A closer look of cells with larva and eggs.
