Bees on Honeycomb

This photo is of my bees working on a fairly new comb they are building. You can see a bit of honey up in the top left and right of the comb. This will go to feed the brood as it is hatches from the lower area of the same comb later. The top bar hives that I use are completely natural and the bees form their combs free-form, without the wax sheets that are used in a more typical box hive. When you look at it up close, it is simply beautiful, and an incredible work of art.
