August 22nd: Queen Still In Deep Brood Box

Opened the hive and looked hard for the queen.  Never saw her.  The deep brood box has at least 4 frames of capped brood and a couple of frames of open eggs/larvae.  She is still definitely at work in that box.  The medium boxes above and below the deep had no brood in them.  The bees are starting to store nectar in them, the bottom medium more than the center medium.

Lots of brood, lots of bees, lots of nectar/honey.  Also saw some stored pollen.
