Nice frame!  White white white

I've found that capped honey is a suggestion to the queen, not a barrier.

good pic of the behavior around the queen, although they are usually a little more crowded.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Like most ladies of the house, she must be inspecting the work to make sure it is to her liking.  grin Nice picture of how white the new wax is.

Just 2 frames and the bottom frame was full as it is almost completely full of capped brood now.  I have since replaced full frame of honey with new frame and foundation. She probably was wandering around looking for empty cells.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
