If you missed our author talk with Elaine Sedgman, you can still check out some videos of the remarkable Osmia lignaria, or Blue Orchard Bee, here!
This one shows the development of a baby (larva) BOB.
Part 2 of BOB’s development is spinning a cocoon. Watch it here using time lapse photography.
And finally, here’s a great video showing how BOB builds cells for all of her larva with enough pollen to feed them while they grow from larva to bee!
If you want to read more about BOB, find A Bee Named BOB at the library!
