This is such an incredible time-lapse video, witness the eerily beautiful growth of larvae into bees captured by photographer Anand Varma. Varma was assigned by National Geographic to photograph the life of a bee.  In order to do that, Varma embarked on a six-month project, for which he built a beehive in his workshop and that gave him a new respect for the meticulous job of beekeeping.
