Beehive with tail is a 10-bit still life. It is one of the still lifes used in the syringe, a glider-to-Herschel converter.


Beehive with tail is the thirty-eighth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than beehive on dock but more common than scorpion.[1] It is also the forty-seventh most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2]

Glider synthesis

All strict still lifes with a population of 20 or fewer cells, as well as all oscillators and spaceships with 16 or fewer cells, are known to be glider-constructible. A glider synthesis of this object can be found in the infobox to the right.
