Bee’s life in hypnotizing 60 seconds timelapse

The first 21 days of a bee’s life are captured in this inspiring video by photographer Anand Varma. Bees pollinate 1/3 of the world’s food crop but are being threatened by the Varroa destructor mite; Varma was hired to document the process. While scientists have succeeded in breeding a mite-resistant bee, it lacks other desirable traits such as gentleness and the ability to store honey. More details are explained in the Ted Talk below.

Anand Varma is a freelance science photographer and contributor to National Geographic Magazine. He wins in 2015 World Press Award for best Nature story.
