    Default A Bully Bee?

    I was videotaping some bees on our Flowering Cherry tree a couple of days ago when I saw what looked to be one bee pulling another bee off a blossom. There's a short slow-motion video of it here... http://solarbeez.com/2013/04/10/a-bully-bee/
    The bully bee then just flies off. What's going on?

    I saw another example of a bee tackling a white-winged insect that was innocently hanging out on the side of a crocus. The honeybee had been flying around it for some time, then did a 'fly-by' and uncerimoniously brushed it off the flower.
