The Queen is in da House

The Mud Honey hive met their new monarch today. 

Her royal highness was acquired from Beez Neez (in Snohomish), whisked back to Seattle in Pepe the Prius, and installed in her new home. Let's see you start producing, missy. Otherwise, "Off With Her Head!". 

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...
