I went back to the laboratories at the Uni in Preston last week with my bag full of dead bees i've collected.
Adam worked out how to use the camera that attaches to one of the lenses on the microscopes.
I must say i'm loving the images of the bees in extreme close up: the colours and shapes not entirely clear.
I'll definitely go back again and try and take more images of dead bees that i keep finding (on a walk on Sunday i found 10 dead bumblebees in total - 6 were from around a bumblebee nest in the ground - i'm beginning to wonder if bees drop dead at my feet).
