Science is not always theory driven. Purely descriptive studies can be fascinating too. Here is a collection of videos illustrating extremely rare behaviours in the #honeybee including egg laying by the queen and brood care by workers. I have spent years working on bees, and I've never seen such a thorough work. #science #biology #bee #animalbehaviour

@fxdm Most of science is not theory driven. Most of the big discoveries are "Hmm.. that's odd"-driven 😛
