More Bee Videos

A bee on the Lavender in the Lutyens-Jekyll Garden at Harlow Carr....
A few more video reports lifted from the BBC news website. One about the Colony collapse disorder, and one from the far north of England, Chilly Northumbria.
Two strands from opposite sides of the Atlantic but with a common theme.I just heard that the Honey Bee's in the USA were introduced in 1622.
385 years ago, and untill the spring of 2007 things must have been okay.The researchers are doing bee autopsys trying to find out the cause of death. From Florida, to the Dakotas, to California.
Here is the first link:

and the second Northumbria link (notice the long running joke about the North/South divide prevelant in England. Historical and still current.)

I dont know if these links will work for USA bloggers. Tell me if they dont :(
A day of honey bee's and videos. Thanks to KQED for emailing me videolinks and starting my mini research into Bees and pollination.

It didn't work for me, but that doesnt mean a whole lot.. Sometimes my connection is slow, esp. with storms moving in.. I love big fat bumblebees..

I'm in US and it didn't work for me either and I usually have no trouble getting videos to play.

You mean Northumberland - no such place as Northumbria!
