Top Bar Hives Natural Wax, Pollen and Honey

Two combs collapsed after the last tragic hive inspection which killed the Queen. We ate them today and it was sweet and sour :) The pollen seems to have an acid taste to it and the honey is in the acidic pH5 range.
One can clearly see different colors of pollen from different flowers of course.
This comb was totally build naturallly. This is not a fundation wax. Note how white it is.
After I devoured most of it I got such a sugar rush :D
The cells with clear liquid are filled with un-cupped honey
