On a hot day in June of 2018, I spotted a worker bee hatching. I did not film long enough to see the end of the hatch. Suspect I was getting too hot to sit there long enough. In spite of that, it is interesting to watch even part of the process. Note that other bees come by to offer encouragement, and maybe even a bit of assistance. But maybe that is to anthropomorphize too much… I don’t know. What I do know is that these are amazing creatures, and it is a joy and I am privileged to work with them.

(Sorry for the camera shake)
