efficient storage

this is our first sample of honey and nectar from our bees that we have gotten so far this year. the cells above that are sealed are full of honey, and the open cells are full of nectar.  the bees are waiting for the nectar to evaporate a bit more before they seal it off to provide winter food for the hive.
