    Default What grafts look like

    A friend asked if I had any of these videos she could use for a class...I thought they were dead in a hd crash, but found this one from our c9nference (I think). The audio is annoying...sorry. I'll do some better filming of this stuff soon.

    This is a larva grafted onto a microscope slide. You can see it is just eating and eating...and you can see the spiricles.

    That is flat-out the coolest thing I've seen today!

    Thanks for posting it.

    Thanks. I have a teaching microscope (two separate eyepieces that can be used at the same time), and a small camera that can go into the second eyepiece.

    When I teach grafting, I have students start by grafting onto a microscope slide (easier than the bottom of a cup), and then we look at them under the scope on the computer screen.

    I find it helpful to have a picture in my head of what is going on but too small to see.

    What you really get is that they are just eating machines.

    great video- can see why that would be for students learning grafting to see up close the "why"

    I had to chuckle when I read this... I use a camera setup in a similar way, just on the opposite end with a little more mature queen. Perhaps I need to start from the beginning...
