Last weekend I set up a camera to record activity in my Warre hive. I was insterested to see how the bees manage the cells that were built on one of the windows, creating nice crossection through the cells.
I recorded over 5 hours of bee activity and compressed it into 4.5 minutes. My Warre hive has observation windows so we can see what the bees are doing during the honey flow.
Watch the top cells in the left comb. The bees will eat the honey, clean up the empty cell and start filling it with fresh honey.
Also, the left comb appears to have some sort of parasite (wax moth larvae?) operating in the middle between the left and right side cells.

Makes you really appreciate the phrase "busy as a bee"

What is the longest time you can film and cut it down for viewing?  If you can record over 5 days and catch comb being built on along the grass, that would be really cool.

The lenght of recoding is really just limited by my time. I have power source near the hives so I can power the camera. I can swap the memory cards as needed. But editing it would be hell as it's all filmed in HD.
I'll try to record to comb building as I add another box to the Warrre.

I have just one, for now but built it myself - from the original Warre plans and the window mod published on the web.
I will build more if they survive this season.

That was wonderful! Thank you!

My wife and I were just talking today about setting up time lapse video.
