Caption: African honey bee (Apis mellifera scutellata), coloured scanning electron micrograph. Its large compound eyes are seen on either side of its head. Between them are its long antennae. This bee is native to southern and central Africa, but it has been introduced to the tropical and sub-tropical Americas. It is more prone to sting than the European honey bee, and a swarm may defend its hive with some vigour. Magnification unknown.
