Hive Inspection

I was invited to go with a fellow club member to inspect a couple of hives. I really appreciate this, it really helps the learning. He was checking on a requeening to see if she was making any new brood. It looked like she was, although hard to see. No smoke. I wore my new suit without a glitch. This owner had several feeders away from the hives for the bees to feed on, since we have been so dry around here. She also had a nice plastic shed for all of the bee equipment. The hives had the covers slid back slightly for some air circulation
