Caption

Close-up of the everted penis of a dead male drone honey bee (Apis mellifera). Male honey bees exist solely to mate with a queen, and do not collect nectar for the hive. They mate with a queen bee by everting their penis and firing a parcel of sperm into her abdomen. This process invariably kills the male bee. Filmed in Normandy, France.
