We’ve heard that bees are disappearing.

But what is making bee colonies so vulnerable? Photographer Anand Varma raised bees in his backyard — in front of a camera — to get an up close view.

This project, for National Geographic, gives a lyrical glimpse into a bee hive — and reveals one of the biggest threats to its health, a mite that preys on baby bees in the first 21 days of life.

With his incredible footage, set to music from Magik*Magik Orchestra, Varma shows the problem ...

and what’s being done to solve it.
