Honey bee

Apis melifera linnaeus


Honey bees are somewhat variable in color but are some shade of black, brown or brown intermixed with yellow. They have dense hairs on the Pronotum and sparser hair on the Abdomen. Microscopically, at least some of the body hairs of bees (Apoidea) are branched (Pumose). The abdomen often appears banded. Larvae are white, legless grubs.


I think the first pic is a queen.
