Also, one queen has passed away le...

Colorado possible queen

little over 1cm, Longmont, Colorado.
She seems bigger than most of the workers in my area and has a different shape. I can't tell if she's a queen or not tho.

I got into the hobby late last year and was too impatient to wait, so I got the queen with about 7 wo...
