Right place at the right time.

                             A worker bee, checking out the new Queen , second after being placed in the hive..

An hour sooner or an hour later ,checking the hives, and we would have missed this! We were able to watch 4 Queen Cells emerge  from an emergency cell in a Queenless hive.  All have been place in new nucs( hives.)
you could hear them chewing there way through trying ever so hard to make their way out of the cell, it was really a cool event to witness.
what a blessing and how grateful we are for these experiences on our farm!!!

I hope you enjoy the photos!
