If anyone can tell by the markings, I would just like to know.

They are all around here.

Thanks,

Yes, I am fairly certain that they are feral bees. As far as I can tell there isn't anyone within 3 miles of me keeping bees.

And yes, I would say a very happy bee. :)

Looks like a regular honeybee, probably Italian.
