July Honey

One of my hobbies is beekeeping. Here are the first finished frames of the season. The orange stuff that you see around the edges is propolis. Bee Glue. It's what honey bees use to cement everything into place. You can see that most cells have a light covering of wax. This means that the nectar has reached the perfect ripeness. I will collect sealed frames until September when they are done producing extra honey for the year.
