Female Honey Bee Guarding The Hive


This female honey bee takes her job very seriously. She hangs upside down and keeps a lookout for predators. They don't want to stink but they will if they feel threatened...
Guarding the hive and queen

Honey bees begin their work as a member of her colony from the first moment she chews off the wax cap of her cell and emerges. One of the jobs they perform is a guard. They will hang upside down in the opening and look for unwanted guests to appear.
