Inside the hive. New combs are white - you can see the dark honey in some of them. The really dark comb is some of the original supplied with the hive and also full of honey and brood.

The idea of a Queen excluder is to keep brood out of the honey stores. The bees get to use their honey, the Queen gets to lay plenty of eggs and everyone benefits.
In the boxy Langstroth hives they have Queen excluders to keep the Queen away from the honey in the top box (look at me going on as if I knew what I was talking about lol). Something to do with making honey easier to harvest I think.
Some Wiki wisdom.
Isn't that normal? The Queen's always being attended by her brood.
No Queen exclusion in natural bee keeping. She's in there with everyone else.
Exciting! How do you exclude the Queen from the honey-combs?
