Have You Seen This? Honeybee pulls out metal nail
We all know honeybees are industrious and driven, but this video takes it to a whole new level. - photo by Martha Ostergar
THE HIVE As residents of The Beehive State, we know a thing or two about honeybees.

We know theyre industrious, we know their productivity relies on collaboration and we know they make hives wherever they want as long as a group of scouts find the site to be acceptable. Once a hive is established, theres no stopping a bee from trying to get back to its people.

So its no surprise that the honeybee in this video is doing whatever it takes to get into its presumed hive. And what does it do, you ask? Well, it pulls a nail out of a brick wall to clear the path for home.

Sure, the nail wasnt hammered in tightly, but it was flush with the wall and it probably weighs more than the bee, increasing the impressive nature of, well, nature. To top it all off, the bee completes its feat of strength and determination in less than a minute.

Im sure theres some metaphor of creativity and industry that could be cleverly stated and used to inspire thousands across the Internet, but I will fully admit that Im not nearly as clever or industrious as any given honeybee. Heck, Im lucky if I decide to move my arm more than six inches to grab the remote. Basically, youre welcome for the entertaining video, but youre on your own for inspiration.

The video was first posted in 2012, but it recently resurfaced, garnering new and well-deserved attention.
