The Nature of Things A Bee's Diary

We see a beehive as a collective, even a super-organism. But each one is filled with thousands of small but bold, six-legged individuals. What if we looked at just one? Scientists are learning that each bee in a hive is an individual with its own personality and this diversity allows the collective to respond and adapt quickly to their environment. In seven weeks, a single bee will fly 8,000 km, pollinate 50,000 flowers and make just one gram of honey. Experience the life of a single bee, through her own eyes.
