I wondered while watching how the bees in this video expose the nectar in order to evaporate the water off of it (using their proboscis), do they do this rather than exposing it once deposited in the comb and fanning it like our bees do?
Another short video showing this defensive technique:
That is so cool. I wonder if these are the bees that I read about that natives harvest honey from. I had read they had giant comb. If so, imagine gathering the honey without our western beekeeping equipment!
