Bees on a Winter Day

We have good and bad news to report from the bee yard. The good news is our hive we've dubbed the "mean girls" are alive and well, as well as mean as ever! This hive is strong and thriving.

I added some more pollen patties and vondant left over. 

Sadly the other hive did not do so well. I found bees throughout the hive in clusters that appear to have starved to death. This cluster was interesting as it had the queen and some workers in the center but tons of food on this frame and throughout the whole hive.

Here is a closer view...

And even a closer one here. She still has her dot on her back. So very sad...
