Species: Honey Bee
Scientific Name: Apis Mellifera

Class: Insecta
Order: Hymenoptera
Family: Apidae
Genus: Apis
————-
Description: Worker bees (9-18mm); drone bees (15-16mm); queen bees (18-20mm) Golden Brown color and black with orange or yellow bands on abdomen. Six leg, pair of antennas, covered in hair, and three body segments.

Details: honey bees are one of the most important insects in the ecosystem. They produce a HUGE fraction of our foods today. Bees live in hives with up to 80,000 workers. All led by a single queen bee. They’re very social insects, and aren’t known to sting humans unless provoked or threatened. Only female bees sting hover. Male bees (Drones) do not have a stinger.

Diet: Adults feed on nectar, honey and larvae honey. When a queen is needed, a special kind of honey is produced called ‘royal jelly’ or ‘royal honey’ and is fed to the larvae which become a future queen.

Distribution: honey bees were brought to North America from the ‘old world’ and they are now cosmopolitan. You can find them virtually anywhere where flowers can be found; gardens, bushes, trees, etc.

Finally had a chance to upload my shot of this gorgeous praying mantis from the 'proper' camera

I like praying mantises. Not just because they look like they belong in Star Wars, but because the thing they're famous for is something as weird as sexual cannibalism (bear with me, there's every chance a point will emerge, it might even be a good one...)
😲😯😬
The females sometimes eat the males after knocking boots, which effectively makes relationships a big game of Russian roulette. Yet, simple creatures that they are, mantis males are still very much driven by their urges to partake of this suicidal sexual conduct... Men huh?!
😜😜😜
Thank God our highly developed, morally balanced, intellectually advanced and eminently superior species - self-proclaimed rulers of the Earth no less - rose above suicidal relationship choices long, long ago
😘😝😅
