Caption: Queen bee with worker bees on a comb in a hive. The queen bee has been marked with a spot of paint (blue) to enable her to be identified. The colour enables the beekeeper to keep track of her age. Bees collect nectar from a wide range of flowering plants, bringing it back to their hive to store it and form honey. The honey is used as food by bee larva, and is also collected by beekeepers for human consumption. The most commonly domesticated bee is the common honey bee (Apis mellifera).
