Well I thought all was fine and dandy like cotton candy with the cam and computer, when I powered everything down at 7 a.m. this morning. But instead of some 20 hours of timelapse footage, unbeknownst to me the set-up crapped out after only 2.5 hours — which is probably for the better. One minute and 44 seconds of a bees busy on a bobbing flower is a better bite than 10 times that amount. Enjoy. And be sure to pay attention to the way the bees work around the flower.

PS. I’ll also be tossing it up on YouTube later.

UPDATE (8.4): After several failed attempts with YouTube’s balky rejecting upload function, success was finally achieved and the YouTube version is viewable here.
