Buzzzzz! Bee digitization by the @SIxDIGI team at the Smithsonian's @NMNH #SIxRCPP

IMG_20140731_153455015.jpgI took a trip up to the 6th floor of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History last week to take a look at the Digitization Program Office's rapid capture project for the honeybee collection of the museum. The team is making very good time on the project and what was going to just be a test project is on target to digitize all 46,000+ bees in the collection.

Below is Ken Rahaim showing how the bees are staged before getting digitized.

Here are a few snaps of the project in action.
