Bee Pr0n

March 6, 2007

I was just looking to e-mail someone the link to the National Geographic bee fight video, in which a swarm of hornets devours a hive to Wagner’s Flight of the Valkyries, but apparently the link I had has gone dead.  Fortunately, I came across this awesome video of bees turning the tables and roasting Japanese hornets to death (as previously described in my Great Balls of Fire post).

And, of course, you can enjoy my own, home made Bee Fight video

If anyone can find that other video though, let me know.  Your Google Fu is stronger than mine.
