Honeybees by Ingo Arndt (20) More files...
Dipping deep into the complexities of a honeybee colony Ingo Arndt captures the heirarchy, cooperation and daily hard work of Apis mellifera. Unique behaviors such as bee workers smothering and killing a wasp by overheating it, workers exuding wax scales from their abdomens and bees emerging from brood cells are included in this gallery. As we all know, bee populations worldwide are declining - here we see the insects poisoned by pesticides along with their natural threats including mites, wax moths and predatory wasps. Ingo's photography also includes examples of wildflower fields next to cultivated fields as a technique to attract and support pollinators and researchers tracking bees with tiny radio tags to learn about flight patterns.
