Amazingly up-close footage filmed with specially developed macro lenses brings you the most intimate- and most spectacular- portrayal of a working bee colony ever filmed. Itís not frightening- itís fascinating. See things you never imagined. Hear things only bees hear. Discover new found facts about the strange and complex life of bees.Have you ever seen the high-speed mid-air "wedding flight" of a drone and his queen? Do you know how the colony defends itself against honey-loving bears? Did you know it takes nectar from 10 million flowers to create a single liter of honey? No wonder theyíre called worker bees! Bees: Tales from the Hive exposes a bee colonyís secret world- detailing such rarely-seen events as the life-or-death battle between a pair of rival queens, a bee eater's attack on the hive, and a scout beeís mysterious dance that shares special "nectar directions" with the rest of the hive. Special DVD features include: a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; and closed captions.
