Bees, Please!

 The apiary is finally up and running!  Despite getting my nuc almost a month late, the bees seem to be doing pretty well.  They took a bit of a hit at first, though, since the original queen was MIA.  Thankfully, the bees had the good sense to rear a new one. 

Here are some pics of my bro, D, and I.  We're trying to find the new queen.

The frames are surprisingly heavy.  When they're loaded with honey, it takes some serious muscle to lift those suckers!

Us, in our spacesuits.  We're searching for the queen.

There she is!  See her?
