    Very cool set of images through the chicken wire. Great "bee home" for this species.

    Sorry the images aren't in good focus, but she was so fast I could only point, shoot and hope I got something.

    The "chicken wire" is actually bird wire, about 15 mm between uprights. At this scale, the holes (and the bee) are about 2 or 3 mm diameter.
