Honey? Super!

Got the honey super added this morning.  Didn't end up taking the camera to get shots inside the hive because I had a smoker issue and well...  lets just say they bees have been happier.  Good news is that I somehow managed not to get stung and the bees seem no worse for the wear.  Found and clipped two Queen cells, saw good brood patterns, and lots of honey stored.  I'm taking these as good signs.  Every time I see a queen cell I am tempted to divide and conquer and start a new colony - haven't been brave enough yet.  Always open to hearing the experiences and opinions of others on the matter.

Here are some pictures and videos of the ladies telling me where to go after adding the super.

Enjoy!
