New Comb In Walter Bee

I added this super to Walter Bee a couple of weeks ago and the workers are drawing out nice white comb. Click on the pictures to get a good look at the wax they're building on the foundation. Sorry for the blurs. Needless to say, it had rained all morning and I think a raindrop must have found it's way onto my camera lense. I didn't remove all the frames, but could see down inside that the bees were working quite nicely in the center.

Pretty white comb.

I very briefly removed the yellow super and could see a tremendous amount of activity in the gray box. Lots of honey.

What lovely combs they are building. It's so nice when a hive is new and clean and fresh.

I'm finally getting my bees this week (4 June) and I can't wait!
