    I have 2 hives of different breeds. can't say that any have a Mohawk, but I do have some blond very hairy bees in each hive! I'd say it's probably just that hives fashion statement!! Punk rock bees!!

    Queens mate with a handful of different drones. Or the punk rock girls are in some coke, I mean white pollen.

    Does her tail kinda look like this one. The fine hairs are coated in pollen dust, white like the pure driven snow.

    Your Queen mated with a few punker drones.... (j/k) You are probably observing the younger bees out for their orientation flights. They wear their fuzz off after time.

    Guess I should have updated (thought I had...)...Ignore my post please.. I didn't see the picture well, and you have been given far more solid advice above.
