There is a Queen!

I've left Little Legs' hive alone for 3 weeks now, giving the virgin Queen (if that is what I heard croaking in there!) time to mate and come in to lay without being disturbed by me.  And guess what....?  It was a Queen - BLT is crowned!  I'm yet to see her, but the video shows the brood I saw today - she has been laying eggs for at least 8 days.  Hopefully now BLT and her hive will take off and have a successful summer. I'm looking forward to seeing what a difference a week makes next week
