    What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen bee?

    African or European?

    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    To Clarify.....The title caught my attention and reminded me of Monty Python. The discussion had gone quiet and no derailment or disrespect was intended. As an edit

    "Africanized or European"

    I think most of us got it. I thought it was a funny and appropriate bit of humor. But then again, I am not the sanest person in the asylum.

    Ok. Is this what I've been looking for?



    The ones circled in green look fatter than the ones circled in red. Or am I fooling myself because I can tell by their direction whether they're coming or going? Or is it the camera angle?

    No, I think your interpretation is correct. After only seeing winter bees for six months of the year, on the first really good nectar day I am always startled by how big my bees suddenly appear. I know it's going happen, but it always surprises me to see it. Any month now, it will surely happen. It's snowing again today here.

    Thanks for resurrecting the thread. Just got this shot today. I can always tell a fully loaded bee by the "see-through" appearance of their abdomen.
