From egg to the air: 21 days of bee development condensed into one mesmerising minute

Birth of a Bee from Anand Varma on Vimeo.

After just three weeks of development, worker bees emerge from their brood cells fully formed, flying out to begin supporting their hive. In a stunning high-definition time-lapse video, the US photographer Anand Varma follows the bee’s stages of development from egg to larvae to pupa to worker bee, with a sprightly score to match the insects’ rather startling journey into being.
