Beekeeping Update

Quick update on my beekeeping adventure.

My first hive is doing really well (right hive in the picture above), I've a honey super on top along with a queen excluder. The bees have just started to build out the comb and are storing nectar. I took a few pictures along with a short video.

The second and third hive are not as strong as the first, which has a month head start. Hopefully they'll catch up as the new bees start to hatch.

Notice the propolis they're applying to the inner hive top.
