Honey Bees / Honigbienen / Apis mellifera

Zoomed in and cropped at 100% size. No way I would go that close to a hive entrance! :o) / Herangezoomt und ohne verkleinerung ausgeschnitten. So nahe bringt mich niemand an den Einflugschlitz vom Bienenstock! :o)

I thought 'wow', then had to laugh when read notes! Splendid shot though!

Well, what can I say, my interest in getting stung is minimal....

One of the local apple farmers where we frequent the farm store took the bike helmet with camera with him for bee keeping tasks and showed the movies in the store on a spare monitor above the honey rack for a while to draw attention to it. Authentic angry Maja action whilst a human in protective gloves fumbles about the combs.... thats really scary.
