Caption: Beekeeping: beekeeper in full protective clothing removes a super frame from a bee hive. Super frames slot into the top of the hive and contain the honey comb. No eggs are laid in this part of the frame. The brood chamber, where the queen lays her eggs, is found in the lower part of the hive. At the bottom of the picture is a smoker, used to pacify the bees before opening the hive.
