Neat! can't say I know what causes it though. Wired combination of genes?

Racing stripes?
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

The alien invasion won't happen because some green guy from mars with a similar humanoid appearence shows up. It will happen because they fit in with our insect population and change things from there. the next thing you know you have wierd colored bees........... Oh wait. I guess it's to late. We are doomed. :)

That is a very cool looking bee.

The moment it abducts me and start laser photographing my internal organs I am going to be very concerned. I promise. :)

Post more pictures.

This year's queen dot color is red. 
  Will you be breeding queens that are pre-marked?  :-D

Was on ventrillo the other nite and overheard Bud talking with, I believe, little John, or Alan about one of his queens being red. John, or Alan said it was a pigmentation or mutation thing or something, that ocurrs sometimes with black queens. Something like that. Ask Bud for more details. All I know is that Bud was excited about seeing that red queen. I could hear it in his voice, was like someone put a big fresh plate of fried chitlins in front of him.
