2011-01-29 Metropolis and Baghdad inspections

I wanted to check Metropolis, it was 2 weeks after harvesting,
and at that time I didn't go through the hive,
we only stole the honey.
Simon gave me a hand...
In their cave, the bees were restless.....
All good in the upper boxes, but in the brood chamber was a bit of a worry.
At the time I didn't see any capped brood at all.
I reckon maybe the queen is dead?

This one is Baghdad
 I checked it out with dad the next day .
The top box was slowly filling up, most of the frames were drawn, and some capped honey in there.
This shot is of one of the brood frames from the bottom box, up against the sun.
Edis. Still waiting for the rent.
