OpenCV to count bees

We now can fetch image from camera.

OpenCV, Open source Computer Vision could replace our eyes in giving some to a computer. :-)

# Standard imports
import cv2
import numpy as np;

# Read image
im = cv2.imread("image3visblob.jpg", cv2.IMREAD_GRAYSCALE)

# Set up the detector with default parameters.
detector = cv2.SimpleBlobDetector()

# Detect blobs.
keypoints = detector.detect(im)
print keypoints
# Draw detected blobs as red circles.
# cv2.DRAW_MATCHES_FLAGS_DRAW_RICH_KEYPOINTS ensures the size of the circle corresponds to the size of blob
im_with_keypoints = cv2.drawKeypoints(im, keypoints, np.array([]), (0,0,255), cv2.DRAW_MATCHES_FLAGS_DRAW_RICH_KEYPOINTS)

cv2.imwrite("blobdetected.jpg", im_with_keypoints)
# Show keypoints
cv2.imshow("Keypoints", im_with_keypoints)
