Hive inspection

Breakfast first. Dried mangos for oatmeal.

Top of the hive inspection. Looks good.

They didn't obey the rules and built comb all over. Good for them!

I guess it is called cross-comb when it's built between the top bars. Supposedly aligning them to magnetic north can reduce that. Except "Mr. Geologist" habitually corrected for declination...so the hive is oriented 16 degrees off.

Hair. Is getting. Ridiculous.
