Apis mellifera (Honey bee)♂︎

Last update: 8 June 2022


LOCATION: Krimpen aan den IJssel, garden


Loudly buzzing this Honey bee (Apis melifera) [1] male entered the scene crawling on the garden tiles. Very nice since I had not seen a male of this species before. He looks cute and cuddly with his plump fluffy body and large beady eyes.

He was very conscious of my presence , or the flashlight’s, and kept crawling towards me while looking up. Slowly he become less energetic and looked like he was dying, so I put him on a Ox-eye daisy flower where he drank a little. After some time he had left.
