Egg Laying in the Austroplebeia cincta Stingless Bees
by Anne Dollin

Here is some more highly magnified footage, from Aussie Bee's collection, showing these tiny Australian A. cincta stingless bees from far north Queensland as they build their brood.
See the worker bees prepare a waxen brood cell. Then watch the queen lay her egg. Finally see a worker bee busily closing up the cell.
