A great birthday gift - a microscope.  The detail is amazing.  It's all very well seeing those larger than life pics in the books which help to understand the anatomy of the bee but to take one of the bees from one's own hive and look at it in detail is wonderful.  To see in fine detail the hairy body of this amazing insect, so intricate, no wonder the bees are constantly cleaning one another - I could easily see the glistening sugary-like substance all over its body.

I shall enjoy this new toy!

NB: No bees were harmed for this indulgance!
