This picture is from a swarm that i collected they replaced the old queen that came with the swarm and now have a very good queen.
Check out this frame not one drone on it and every cell is filled with somthing, even the ones around the edge either have uncapped larva or pollen in them:

Nawww, I dont think thats it...I usually see the start of a pic downloading as soon as I see the message...I dont have anything to click on either....I was wondering if my system was blocking pics from a specific place.
Sorry I missed it!

Okay Johnny since you can't see it I will describe it to you   :-D
Its a deep frame of mostly capped brood. The brood is all the way across the bottom of the frame and then is going all the way up the frame forming a triangle shape towards the top of the frame. Then there are two smaller triangles of capped comb in each corner.
There is a couple of rows of uncapped cells between the big triangle and the smaller ones that Jordan says are filled with larva or pollen.
Hows that? ;)
