I found the Queen!

I found the Queen!  The Bergamot Hive is a glorious mystery to me with wax that is chocolate brown, smelling like cocoa, and produces a lot of honey. The Queen (mother bee) has eluded all attempts at detection. Then on a brilliant Saturday morning during the hive inspection of this calm hive, (Calm bee means there must be a Queen bee inside, right?) while examining the frames Her Majesty revealed herself!  She is a beautiful caramel color and fast; as soon as she was spotted she slipped to the other side of the frame. The shy lady that she is, who can blame her modesty.  Then promptly placed the frame back into the hive-body and put the hive back together.

Here are some pictures of the frames and at least one has the Queen on it.

Happy Hunting!
