Hive #2 checked on wednesday

Went back to hive #2 yesterday to see if I could see evidence of the queen. It wasn’t overly warm, but the sun was out. I noticed about equal amounts of traffic in/out of both hives. However, I still was unable to see any eggs. Again the bees were pretty tight on the frames where I’d expect to see the eggs, so if there were some, I couldn’t see them anyway.
The sugar water was down about an inch in each of the 4 jars, so at least they are eating.

I emailed my mentor to let him know the status and request his keen eyes for a visit to my hives soon. HOpefully this weekend will be sunny enough to check.
