Sadly I think I might have damaged that brood while brushing bees off of the frame with a feather.  Or does emerging brood look as white as that when the seal is first broken?





They built that cell on a frame that was part of a newspaper combine that was placed 2 boxes above the brood nest of the queenright hive.  It is the only one that I saw that has a larva in it - I'm going to put it in a nuc next weekend if it looks viable.

BTW yeah itdoes seem like some damage was done since it's the emerging bee that usually opens its own cell cap hence larvae shud remain capped.Don't kno tf that'd pose much of a problem tho,either  the bees will recap or get rid of those exposed larvae......Sorry,guess ur top class pics had us in full amazement,didn't even rememb wat the topic/question was Wink
