For the past couple weeks at work, one of the things I have been doing is rearing blue orchard bees to weigh them before they are released. I also just got a new phone with awesome time-lapsing abilities, so I have been practicing on the little bees as they emerge. This is one of the better ones so far. I have yet to capture the emergence itself in a way that is both stable and in focus, but I like this one because you can see a mite crawling around on the pupa case while it is starting to chew its way out. If you catch it’s ‘mustache’ and long antennae, that is how you know it is a male. Pretty neat, huh?
