European Honeybee 06/04/12

I took a couple of photos today of these bees to compare them to the Blue Banded Bees that I have been seeing lately near our flowering lilirope plants.  These pics are of the European Honeybee, an introduced Bee to Australia.  This bee is used for honey production and crop pollination throughout Australia. Feral nests of this bee are also found in most areas of Australia. Information from: www.aussiebee.com.au
