Caption

Queen and drone honeybees (Apis mellifera). Three castes of bees are found in a hive, the queen, drone and worker bees. Each hive has only one queen (right), and she produces all of the eggs for the colony, which are cared for by attendant worker bees. Before laying eggs she must mate with a drone (left), a male bee produced in the summer solely for mating. The act of mating kills the drone. Honeybees are found throughout the world and are kept by humans for their honey.
