I checked on the bees this weekend and things are looking great! They are working fast and the combs are really starting to take shape. Watching the bees work is quite fascinating! I wish I would've gotten a close up of the bees bringing in the pollen. They are completely loaded up when they come back to the hive with bright red and yellow pollen. I can't wait for the honey. ...However, I may not get any this year. The honey that they do produce this summer has to feed them over the winter (and these Midwest winters can be quite long), so I have to store up!
