Feral (Natural) Hive - Olive Tree

This was an established feral hive - fully exposed under the canopy of an olive tree.  It was quite large and the comb was drawn out in large, long sheets.  It was a difficult re-hive project since all the comb had sticks protruding from every possible angle.  It was tough to free up pieces to hang on the frames.  It's a bit tough to pick out the detail in the photo, but at this point it was essentially a large mass of comb and sticks.
