Observation Hive

Here is a research/observation hive I built for the Bee society at Falmouth University with the help of bee-keeper Matt Pitt.
The hexagon shape holds 12 frames and features transparent windows on the outside as well as on the inside, allowing researchers to observe the bees from all directions.
