    Queen internal organs

    I have been doing a bit of reseach on the mechanics of the fertilisation of eggs. In doing so I had to examine the spermatheca etc of the queen.

    I have done it again.
    Please start looking at the files and photos from the bottom to the top that way it might make some sense.

    Please if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    Finally,

    A BIG HI TO YOU ALL!!!!!

    Re: Queen internal organs

    Just remembered i did a dissection of the spermatheca>>>>>

    Do we have any members who could guide me through what we are seeing in these spermatheca photos?

    Thank you.

    I am glad you are back also!!

    Good pics, I will see if a graduate student from UT will help ID some of the spermatheca.

    Thanks for the pics.

    love them pictures.

    sadly I ain't that kind of beekeeper and therefore my knowledge of internal bee structure is extremely limited.

    Although I don't understand 10% of what I'm looking at, I never tire of looking at your posts and photos. I learn a tiny bit more with each one, so DO continue posting them. I'm sure others get even more from them then I do.
