i think its a honey bee anyway
no its not a honey bee the eyes are to big that is more fly like. I have a honey bee pic somewhere.. i will try and find it. great pic though,, what camra you got.
Oooh! Its actually not a honey bee but a very very good impersonation of one! Its actually a fly Bees/wasps have two very distinct black eyes, while flies (like this one) have much larger eyes and are very rarely black.
Very nice photo, though I love the last one - can see all the detail of its eyes!
Ooops, sorry for cross-post.
this is a newly hatched one from our hive,
as you can see the dinamics are completely different
ok...thanks......time to contact lordv
looks like some sort of drone fly,
lordv should know whatever it is.
you know of lordv?
Yes I know of him but not personally, he's a flickr contact and also on wild about britain.
Weirdly I hate that it is a fly impersonating a bee
love your pics
