Laying queen

Newer Older

A soft and grainy queen laying up a beautiful piece of new comb in theobservation hive along with her attendant workers. She's just lowering her abdomen into an empty cell - see the note for one she laid earlier. I still haven't worked out a way of angling the flash gun to avoid reflections: that's why it was taken with avaialble light @ 800 ASA, but this graininess does give a nice romantic effect.
