Check out this mesmerizing time-lapse video from photographer Anand Varma who captures the incredible first three weeks of a bee’s life.
The incredible six month long project was a collaboration between both Varma and the bee lab at UC Davis in California.
According to National Geographic:
To get this up-close view, Varma made some modifications to the hive and to his workshop. First, he and Rosenthal took two frames of comb out of a hive box and slid them into observation cases—imagine a Connect Four grid made of glass. Then, he drilled a hole through a boarded-up window in the workshop. That way, the bees could come and go as they pleased, but their hive would stay warmer through the winter.
