Caption: Honey bee stinging a person's hand. In this closeup view, one can see the stinger in the skin. After the stinger is embedded in the skin, the bee moves away, leaving the barbed stinger within the skin. The tiny muscles of the venom apparatus still pump venom into the skin after the bee has left.
