Bear pollenbees (drone honeybees)

While we're at it here are some pictures of Bear bees.  Bear bees are male pollenbees, while drone bees are male honeybees.

They have fatter bodies,

much bigger eyes,

and beardy tufts of hair at the end of their abdomens.

We think Bears are important for colony cohesion, thermal regulation and of course as a strategy for reproduction.
