    Looks like at least two different bees, maybe three. The middle is clearly a honeybee, Apis m. The other two could be any of the more than 4,000 native bees in North America. I'm no expert, but I don't think they're honey bees. Nice pictures!

    Thanks, I figured the 3rd one was something different. the top one was the same size as a normal honeybee so i wasnt sure if it was just a different variety.
