Caption: Extreme close up of adult honeybee (Apis mellifera) as it emerges from its honeycomb cell. New adults are identical to others except for their lighter color and inability to sting. This one will be hard at work in a short time dedicating itself to the well being of the hive. Honeybees undergo complete metamorphosis, a process which includes four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult, the latter emerging from a honeycomb cell.
