Albuquerque Beekeepers

Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.

Unlike nectar foragers, pollen foragers take the pollen into the hive and deposit it into the cells themselves.
(Nectar foragers pass it onto a worker bee inside the hive. She will "chew" it for 20-30 minutes before depositing it into a cell.)

Here are two videos of workers returning loaded up with pollen and scraping it out of their pollen baskets - a top view, and a side view.
