nest destroyed by a black bear

Great Video and incite on bear and bee behavior.

Despite having their nest destroyed by a black bear, a battered bee colony refuses to lie down and die. Instead each bee eats its own weight in honey so that the colony will have enough energy to sustain it as it builds a new nest elsewhere in the forest.
