Nice pics and I got two swarms this week that drawn  five cones in one weeks time and both were external hives. One in a friends palm tree 15 ft up and the other was under a sill of an old house. Both are real nice bees and are busy already in their new homes.

The fear of the Lord is clean,enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea ,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

So how did you get the comb out on the other side of the band board?
