My fiance and I were at the park yesterday eating our lunch, and we had a really strange bee occurance.
I noticed something flying towards us out of the periferals, so I looked and saw a strange looking bee. It looked like a wasp with a huge abdomen.
As the flying mutant got closer it landed, seperated, and then flew off!
A bee was carrying another bee and it landed next to our picnic blanket, dropped off the second bee and flew on alone.
The second bee, the one which was dropped off, seemed underdeveloped. It was moving a little, and I moved it into the shade to die. It took about 8 hours then stopped moving. When I was analyzing the second bee, it had no wings and looked smaller. It may have been a young bee.
I am just curious if anyone knows what this was about? I could take a picture if anyone wants one.
