Is it a Honey Bee???

nickrosesnSeptember 8, 2013

The lemmon tree in the backyard is getting a large amount of honey bees working hard to get pollen. Today I tried to get some close up pictures of them at work. There is one bee that I'm curious to find out if it is a honey bee or some other type of bee. It's the same size but a darker different color then the other honey bees that I see. Both types didn't mind me being there, they just flew around my hand to get to the other flowers.

Yes, these are all honey bees, they come in different colors, the first one, [dark] is of Carniolan race or mix, the lighter color ones are Italian race.
