The Queen is in da House

The Mud Honey hive met their new monarch today. 

Little known fact: The color of paint used to mark a queen is indicative of their birth year. You can just make out her paint daub in the below photo. 2010 is a blue year.  This is helpful in remembering how old your queen is. Unless, of course, you're like us and your queens never seem to last more than a few months...
