Caption: Honeybee drone (Apis mellifera). Drones are one of three castes of bees found in a hive, the others being worker bees and the queen honeybee. Drones are mainly produced in the summer when new queens need to mate. The act of mating kills the drone. Honeybees are found throughout the world and are kept by humans for their honey.
