Curiosity Killed the Bee?

So I'm super curious to see what's going on inside my beehives, especially during the winter.
And being a tech nerd, I bought a USB mini camera. Kinda like this one, but the camera part is a bit smaller.   Then I went all McGyver on it and rubber banded a small flashlight to the side, and took it and my laptop out to the hives.

 I was thinking I could just feed it into the front of the hive, and get a good look at what was going on.  It didn't turn out as good as I thought.
But it's still interesting.

Here's the videos I got.

I was using my Macbook, and it seemed like there was a problem recording with Quicktime... I might try it again with the Cowgirls PC laptop...

Spring is almost here, and I'm getting two new hives.
