Figure 6.2 (a) Changes in Tth in an anthophorid bee, Creightonella frontalis, at the end of tethered flight, showing both brief and prolonged rises in Tb. Periods of flight shown by solid bars. (b) Thoracic temperatures (Tth) of female C. frontalis measured by the 'grab and stab' method, compared with stable flight temperatures (SFT).

Note: SFT + 10 s (dashed line) indicates body temperatures 10 s after cessation of tethered flight.
