Queen cell

A capped swarm cell hanging from the bottom bar of a frame with an attendant worker. Bad news for the beekeeper (me) - it's time to do something drastic or there'll be a swarm within a week. So I transferred this and three other frames with queen cells to a nearby queenless hive where hopefully they'll happily accept the new cells. I'll know if it's worked next week ...
