The hole is about two feet wide and one foot tall. In the lower left corner is just building stuff (I don't know what it is). Everything that the bees are on is honeycomb or wax. The hive actually extended beyond the hole in both directions by about a foot, and even down the wall on the right. The beekeeper said we had between 40 and 60,000 bees. Here's a close up of the lower right corner where the bees aren't all clustered so you can see the honey comb.
