Fluffy

Posted by

Here´s an expelled drone - it seem´s the drone battle has started again.
As every year, after the drone´s mission is complete, they are just useless eaters and so they have to leave the hive. The days before that, the working bees feed them less and less so they are weakened, then get expelled - sometimes by force. For some hours they sit and crawl outside the hive and then they die.
This drone was so furry and cute - I called him Fluffy. Rest in peace.
