Beehive, X-ray. Bees collect nectar from a wide range of flowering plants, bringing it back to their hive to store it and form honey for their larvae. Beehives are designed to encourage bees to form honeycombs in a way that aids their periodic removal by beekeepers. This is a WBC hive, named after its inventor William Broughton Carr. The splayed vertical sections (three here) can be lifted up to allow access to the internal boxes (yellow) that contain the honeycomb frames (not present).
