    Nice pic. Almost as cool as a green eyed drone.

    I've been looking forever for those chartreuse eyes. Never seen them yet. Or the red eyes.

    Is it rare to see one like this? I seen one of those drones about a month ago. Tried to catch it but it got away.

    I can't tell a drone from a worker yet.
    Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, guess I will teach permaculture in drought. The bees are still alive.

    Look at the picture at the top and ignore the eye color. Drones have much bigger eyes. They are blunt instead of tapered, they are wider and longer than a worker. They are not long and tapered like a queen.
