Caption: Bees mating on a flower. Close-up footage of two Andrena bees mating on apple blossom. These bees, also called mining bees, develop in underground pupae over the winter. After the adults mate, the females lay eggs in a nest burrow, usually in areas of sandy soil. The eggs will be sealed into cells containing food supplies in the form of pollen and nectar obtained from flowers.
