That is not Apis mellifera. That is something as we say "earth bees" or pollen bees.

if the were all black and not have brown heads and thorax, I would say they were sweet bee's, never seen that kind in the pic before, sweet bee's are real small and hive in the ground and live in will nest close to each other, about 20 holes with them across the road from me in a 20'X20' area.

Color is not essential. The form of body, pollen leg and antenna tell what bug is.

Apis mellifera in outback Australia have been found regularly in abandoned rabbit burrows (when there are no trees around. In our remote mating experiment we had a site without trees for 15km, and the genetics told us there was another colony in the area. We tracked it down by beelining and found it in a rabbit burrow.

That's just an aggrigation of semi-social sweat bees.  I was lucky enough to find a small one in Gainsville last year, though much smaller.  Probably closer to 5 feet by 5 feet area with about 6-7 holes per square foot if I remember correcly.  They're always cover the thistles.
