The other day, we did an inspection of the Elizabeth Taylor hive. I spotted larval bees, and finally saw eggs. Bees' eggs are so insanely tiny that you really have to have good eyes, and an ability to see minute variations in pattern.
What we didn't notice at the time, but spotted later on my photographs was the colony's queen.
I've labeled this photograph, so you can examine the queen, a drone (or male bee), and some other features.
