Today, I visited Christi B.’s apiary. We saw some fascinating things, a few of which were different than what I saw at Alan’s, and I got some more pictures.
Christi keeps some of her bees at a neat small farm in DeSoto, a few miles south of Dallas.
We got to see purple-eyed drone brood, which is meaningful in determining their developmental stage.
All hail the Queen!
I finally got a shot that shows the egg (very center, lower left, center bottom) and also some small open brood. The puddle of goo they’re sitting in is royal jelly.
