In Which We Watch a Bee...

When I was going through my hives a few weeks ago, I came across some extra comb that needed to be removed from the hive.  So, I brought it inside to save.  On examining it further, we were fascinated to see a drone bee emerging from a cell!!!  We watched it from the first little antenna to the time it emerged in full.  Since drones don't have stingers, we didn't have to worry about that. :)  After we watched it for a while, we took it back out to the hive.
