Honey Bees

Challenge #7 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is JUST about 'domesticated' honey bees, which live in hives and provide us with honey for our toast. One or more bees, as you please. NO bumble bees, carpenter bees, native bees.... no hover flies, wasps, flies, spiders etc etc. (They will all have their own challenge later.) The bee/bees must be outside, on flowers, leaves, flying around, or just doing what bees do; NOT under studio lights. Check Wikipedia for information about honey bees. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!
