Incredible Bee’s Time lapse Video

Watch baby bees grow from larvae into fully grown bees by Photographer Anand Varma

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.
