    This is an egg in the process of 'hatching'. The shell begins to dissolve at the end attached to the bottom of the comb.

    This was shot using a Sony NEXC3 camera with a Cannon FD mount 35mm lens that was mounted backwards. Shot on my kitchen table with me holding a flashlight to keep it lit.

    When I graft (or teach grafting), this is what I look for...the larva still has a 'threadlike quality', and isn't yet 'chubby'.

    It's hard to find a good photo of actual grafting.

    This is a good frame to graft from. Eggs transition into very young larvae that have good pools of food (note the eggs have no food).

    Note that she is clearly feeding on nectar, and that there is no pollen in her corbicular baskets...yet she is clearly pollinating. This is in the Greenway Park in Boston.

    This is a slug eating a chalkbrood mummy on the bottom board.

    Here is a close up photograph where you can see the structure of the individual pollen grains. This was taken with the NEXC3 with (if I remember correctly), a Cannon FD 35mm-105mm zoom with an FD 17mm attached backwards to the front of the zoom. This is a standard technique in macrophotography.

    This is cropped and a little bit of 'sharpening' applied (not much).

    The full frame of the shot is of one of the individual structures within the sunflower:

    This book is also amazing:

    It seems to be out of print...if you are into this stuff, just order a copy and don't worry about the shipping.

    Might as well add this one of a female varroa mite:

    And two mites next to a bee leg for comparison ...

    Seems like a good time to give this older thread a bump.
