This video captures a horn-faced bee, the king of cross-pollination in the spring, carrying a bunch of pollens into the beehive, storing it away, and going in backwards in order to lay eggs and then coming back out.

봄 꽃가루 수분의 제왕 머리뿔가위벌이 꽃가루를 모아서 벌집으로 들어갔다 나와서 다시 꽁무니부터 들어간다. 이번에는 알을 낳기 위해서이다.
Due to human activity, the number of wild bees has drastically decreased worldwide. BEE B&B is designed to aid the survival of those that remain. It is a wooden pillar with holes ranging in size from two to eight millimetres, which will be installed on the rooftop and outdoor space of the Korean Pavilion. These pillars will serve as a shelter for loner-type wild bees which are not aggressive, as there is no honey to guard.
