Even the photos don't do her justice.  But she is one heavy laying mother.

She looks just like some Bees I picked up last year.  They were rearing large amounts of Brood early in the year (Jan 15) with excellent pattern.  Were supposed to be a mix Russian-Carnolian-Caucasion but don't know for certain.  Great workers, brought in large amounts of pollen and honey.  But would start stinging if you got within 20ft of the hives.
