Bee Documentary

I watched Bees: Tales from the Hive: Nova (2000) via Netflix last night. I got into a little trouble because I did not tell my wife I was taking up a valuable space in our Netflix queue with this DVD, but luckily it is only 54 minutes long, and I was able to watch and return it in a day.

It is a good documentary as it explores the inner workings of the hive and the entire bee life cycle. It is not an educational video on how to become a beekeeper, but simply takes you through an entire 4 seasons of a beehive. The camerawork is amazing, and I still wonder how they got some of the shots inside the hive. It also appeared to be shot somewhere in Europe and the type of hive they showed was not the usual Langstroth hive as it opened from the side and not the top. I’m going to do some research to see if I can find anything about this hive setup.
