took some random pics of random frames from two hives.  any comments would be very welcome.  i have some concerns about one hive, but i'll see if anyone else comes up with the same.
weather has been crappy, but it's really nice today and will be all week!

thanks.

Those frames are looking good to me.  They look like they just started brooding up.

I swear I saw a bee with a horses head on one frame.  Good pics.  Looks like everything is going as it should.

Kathyp:

It looks like you have a good thing going.

Although that bee in the lower right corner picture looks like it has a bad case of catitis. I hope it isn't as bad as the CCD.
