    Default Honey bee CPR?

    I had a Q faint the other day while I was marking her in a marking tube.She was young,just beginning to lay.
    I set her on top of a frame and she was surrounded by bees touching her with their antenna and extending their proboscis towards her mouth parts.
    First she just laid there,then antenna movement,then quivering,then she stood up,then pulsing abdomen and then she walked down a seam.It took about 7-8 min.

    That would make a great video.
    Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, flood and strange weather. The bees are still alive.

    Sorry about the fuzzyness. Not sure if it will do video but the magnification helps my old eyes
