    Thanks for posting this. Has anyone been able to figure out how you "drive" this thing (pan and zoom)?

    I was contemplating experimenting with a camera in one of the hives, but they propolize everything else I stick in there.

    Wonder how these folks keep it clean.

    Yes, they're clustered. You can see them moving ever so slightly. The camera seems to be in the bottom of the cavity behind a clear cover, pointed upwards.

    It is a standard pan and zoom camera. No biggy.

    I like how the comb is truncated in a curve at the bottom through the hexagon cells. The comb looks empty at the bottom, why no pollen?

    The brood nest is always organized top to bottom with honey at the top, pollen covered with honey next, and then empty cells with bee cluster near the bottom. The bees gradually work their way up into the honey as they raise brood in preparation for spring. The brood will extend down into the empty comb when the colony is large enough to need the room. That is usually after some early spring nectar flows. The comb appears to be fresh new comb built last summer.

    Thank you for sharing. Looking at the wings, is that how they appear when they disconnect them?
