Bee video

Well let's see if this works. It's a video from my phone of my Russians. They are working hard!!

It looks like it worked! I'm about to leave town for two weeks, and will hopefully be getting the cable for the video camera so I can upload the videos I've promised you.

Hives looking good...

Well, after careful deliberation with my supplier, I decided to remove the queen cells. Unfortunately, I dropped the big one into the hive, so I won't have any pictures for you!
I also opened the Russians (gotta find a name for them!) and caught the queen laying eggs! The bees were also starting to move into some of the outer frames, which is a good sign.

I'm still waiting on the power cord for our camera to come from my brother-in-law. Apparently Canon won't let you finalize a DVD with only the battery, they want it plugged in. Stupid idea. Once I have the DVD available, I'll post the vid for you.
