The Director took charge of fixing up our new hive this time:
Bee's go to a lot of trouble to keep a constant temperature inside the hive, using their bodies to warm the hive up if the temperature drops and fanning with their wings to cool the place down. So we devised a way to get access with our lenses (boroscopes and endoscopes if you were wondering Mr XL) without letting in a draught.
We made holes about three inches in diameter in the sides and back of the hive
then we stole someone's yoga pants and cut off half a leg, stapling the stretchy lycra over the hole - The lycra has been cut with a cross so when the lens goes in it is covered by the material
To finish off, pieces of wood are fitted over each hole, they can easily be slid out for filming.
