This is a drone with bee-eyes!? Never saw this before, some ideas?

That is neat. Is that an Africanized bee? I will have to keep an eye out for one like it.

All the drones I see in my hives have a dark colored tale. Are you sure it is a drone? Could be a genetic mutant.  :? :-D

Blanc,
I looks like this one has a dark colored tail. Am I looking at this wrong?

I have drones with blonde abdomens as well as some with black abdomens, but I have never seen one with small eyes like that.  Doubt it is anything but a curiosity.  If drones with small eyes got all the girls, all drones will soon have small eyes.  Otherwise----

We have ligustica, but we are in scutellata área (brazil).
I think  it´s a drone, but...
