Doesn't look like a happy bee either :-P

Ah yes the famous but elusive Apis Melifera Felina.

Instead of mites this one has fleas.

Moonshae, now isn't that just about the cutest little thing ya ever did see.  Have a wonderful, great day.  Cindi

She actually wasn't that upset. She didn't really like the thing on her head, but the fact that she just sat there instead of freaking out and ripping it off instantly says to me that it was briefly tolerable. The coat part she didn't mind at all. :)

I saw a bee so big as a mastin in the web any years ago.
I can´t find the page, it was about the carniolan bee. But I have found that photo in other page edited by an American living in Canarias (Canary islands). I would enjoy a bee so big as a tiger.
