Fun with the Microscope Camera – We Found a German Wasp Queen
We purchased a USB Microscope from Ecroyd Beekeeping at the Bee Conference, not really a Microscope more like a good macro lens. The beauty of this device is that you can plug it into your computer and take photos. So here are some photos:-
One of a Queen Bee that was created by Honey 1 a hive that died, the bees created a new Queen but alas the hive didn't have enough bees to support her.
The next a worker bee that we found on the ground one cold day and once we brought her inside, she came back to life so we let her fly back to the hive.
A German Wasps Queen
The third is a German Wasp Queen that we found today, while we were moving firewood. She must have been waiting for spring to start a new colony of wasps. She looked a lot like a German wasp, but much bigger.
