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.
Honey bee CPR?

This was the second one this year.The first was laying up a storm the next week.

I had just loaded a new app " flashlite plus"
Sorry about the fuzzyness. Not sure if it will do video but the magnification helps my old eyes
