Dance of the Honey Bee, via AbelCine, is a visually rich documentary short film by Director of Photography and beekeeper Peter Nelson. During the film, narrator Bill McKibben of 350.org explains what he loves and admires about honey bees, while Nelson uses his technical skills to capture these beautiful insects’ agility and speed, with their wings beating between 200-230 times per second, all in stunning slow motion.
