    Found this on my travels this evening http://honeybee.drawwing.org

    Contains lots of illustrations and a few photos of honey bee anatomy (and a few other things besides).

    Lots of stuff along this sort of line:

    Funnily enough it's gone straight in my bookmarks.

    Very nice. The site has changed a lot since I was last there.

    I'm familiar with Tofilski's other site http://www.drawwing.org which has almost the same address. I wonder if you are getting the 2 sites mixed up Gavin. Thanks Nellie for pointing out the new one.

    I did wonder when I saw the address whether it was related to drawwing but it was getting late so I didn't dig any further.

    It's getting near to that morphometry time of year.
    I can hear the gentle murmuring of all the nerds and trainspotters.

    I have the progeny of about 30 new queens to check.

    Mars Inc best ramp up production for the coming season.

    Yup, I was mixing the two sites. Befuddled again.

    Default Module 5

    Our study group is run by a retired RBI and one of his favourite sayings is mod 3 & 5 really should be studied together so that it all ties in. He reckons they're easier to grasp if you know which bits which diseases affect.

    I passed mod 5 in March and it is hard, esp. if like me you have no scientific background.
    I find Snodgrass of little use. All the drawings are on a different page then you have to refer to a third page for the legend.
    I used Dade, Yates (latest edition) Davis (very good) and Mark Winston's "The Biology of the Honeybee" which I also think is good. If you really want to push the boat out Lesley Goodman's "Form and Function in the Honeybee" is nice.
    I also picked up a new book at the honey show called "Understanding Bee Anatomy" by Ian Stell. Some very good coloured illustrations.
    With the chance to take exams twice per year I only take one per session. I find the higher the number the harder they are.
    I thought the Mod 5 paper in March was particularly difficult.
    I thought the Bucks notes were a bit weak for Mod 5.

    Thanks for the book references BC. I've been looking online for info on the Digestive system & besides diagrams, there's not much that tells you what each part does unless I'm missing them. This could be more a book based module?

    Had a look through Understanding Bee Anatomy the other night (deliberately linking to IBRA rather than amazon, it costs the same but the proceeds got to bee research rather than tax avoidance ). Looks ideal for module 5 revision and fascinating even if not.
