Pollen Slow Down

We started feeding the Bees for the winter a couple weeks ago.  This time of year it's hard for them to find any pollen from blooming plants so they need some supplemental feedings.  We use big jars and put sugar water in them.  There are holes drilled into the lid and the whole jar gets placed upside down onto a couple strips of wood to create a big feeder.  This gets put into the uppermost section of the hive, above the frames of comb.

Found some free-formed comb!
