I had posted originally posted this to the Wonders of the Day thread, but I have cross-posted it because some people over in the bee forums may also bee interested in this.

interesting content. obnoxious chap talking about it.

if somebody could pass on a couple of tips to Trace: facing the camera is not going to hurt you, so stop twisting your head back and forth. more importantly: those bees gathering nectar (and pollen) from flowers are not guys, they're gals. choosing the appropriate pronoun for humans can be difficult these days, but for bees it's very easy.

but really, the HIV stuff is pretty neat. I also didn't know that melittin makes up the largest fraction of venom. I erroneously believed it was mostly formic acid.
