Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - Children of the sun, a hive's activity is intense when the temperature rises above 15° Celsius and when the flowers produce an abundance of nectar. The nectar is secreted by the flowers to attract the insects who thus ensure the flowers' reproduction by transporting the pollen from the pistils to the stamens.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - Children of the sun, a hive's activity is intense when the temperature rises above 15° Celsius and when the flowers produce an abundance of nectar.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee on the newly-built wax cells. We can see the different sizes of the cells for the males and for the others bees. The males' cells are a third bigger. Their width is 8.75mm and their depth 16-17mm as opposed to 6mm and 12mm for the worker bees' cells.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee on the newly-built wax cells.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - The coming and going of bees during a massive return to the hive. A bee transports 20 to 30 milligrams of nectar and carries out 3 to 10 flights per day during 10 to 20 days of activity. A hive has between 100,000 and 200,000 foraging bees and thus harvests between 60 kilos and 300 kilos of honey per year.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - The coming and going of bees during a massive return to the hive.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs. The bees store the nectar in the wax cells and, fanning it, transform it into honey by lowering the moisture level from 80% to 17%. The buccal exchange between bees, the trophallaxis, plays a role in the making of the honey through the addition of enzymes.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs.

Buff-tailed Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris. Nest interior with worker, honey chambers and larvae chambers. Cut off of one larvae chamber to show the inside. Nests are usually underground, in banks or among tree roots. The queen creates a circular chamber in which she builds a wax egg cell, and she lays her first batch of eggs inside. The eggs are laid on a layer of pollen, which is collected by the queen, and then covered with a layer of wax. After hatching, the white larvae are fed on honey and pollen by the queen. When they are fully-grown, the larvae develop into pupae after spinning a protective silk cocoon around themselves. During the pupal stage, the larvae develop into adult workers.
