Caption: Close up of honeybee (Apis mellifera) larva as it develops within brood cell of a domestic hive. Brood cells are used to house honeybee brood at various stages of development during brood raising season, and for storing pollen and nectar. Larvae represent the second stage in the lives of many insects and hatch from eggs. They are followed by the pupa and adult stage, the latter emerging from capped honeycomb cells.
