Picture post

There’s a nice little picture post here – http://www.newscientist.com/gallery/bee-haviour – with some beautiful clear pictures of bees engaged in various typical behaviours. Good informative text, too. Julie comments: ” I particularly like the guard bee stood on its back legs with its forelegs up ready for a fight.  They didn’t mention in number 2 that one of the queen’s entourage has a varroa mite sat on its thorax, poor thing.”
