Popped the top to check on comb building

I know this isn't the best time of year to be wanting comb.  But I had the second deep with empty frames and wanted to ensure they had room and food for this coming winter.  As cool as it's been this summer, I suspect this might be a cold winter.

Anyways, I looked into two hives today and they're definitely building comb, storing honey (well, it's the syrup I've been feeding them) and laying eggs.  I am very happy with the performance of these bees.  I think I took the right path when I started feeding them again (see previous posts).  I will feed them some more this week and look into the hives again in a week or so.
