At last, the second part of the Zephyrs in the Park series, showing condensed video of the behaviour of the sweat bee, Lasioglossum zephyrum at the nest entrances. Part one can be seen here.
I will eventually upload a full set of all the videos recorded to my gallery site for those who may be interested in the unedited footage. Part 3 will tie the series up, showing some peculiar mating behaviour as well as a look at other insects that I found in close proximity to the nesting site. I may add some information on how I recorded the macro video, including details of the equipment. As usual, comments and helpful critiques are appreciated.
(If the music and my narration drive you nuts, just turn down the volume, and watch the bees–it’s well worth it.)
