The Beeyard mid-July

Hive #6 - all hives have different personalities and this is the least busiest looking hive but it's full of bees and honey.

Hive #4 - I'm sure they're busting at the seams inside - lots and lots of bees.

Hive #1 Front - there seems to be a lot of bees hanging out in this hive - all times of the day and night.

Hive #1 - Back - there's a gap back there - lots of busy bees trying to fill up that crack. Last winter, I put duct tape on it and I'll probably do the same this year. This brood box is 4 years old and was used and a little abused when I got it but it still works and the bees love their little house.
