Mid-winter Sighting

Last weekend the temperature rose above freezing for the first time since New Year's Day.  The sun was out and when the air hit around 40F Oscar's bees took flight.  I whipped up a quick batch of fondant to feed them.  I checked Felix while I was out knee deep in the snow but that hive looks pretty dead as does the top bar.  It looks like one out of three have made it so far.
