I marked a queen today. She is the biggest queen i have ever seen. When i first saw her i thought it was not a bee. She is about 1 and 1/4 inches long and very big around. Her abdomen is as long as a worker bee. She has only been laying for 3 or 4 days so i have no idea how she will do.

I'd like to see a picture; it does sound a bit on the large side. What kind of bee is she supposed to be (Italian, Russian, etc.)?

I wonder how she gets to be so big. Is it genetic or a mutated specie? Just curious!

I am having trouble with my cell phone texting pictures. I will get the phone fixed and post some here. I showed the pictures to some friends and everyone said the same thing "she"s huge" the one thing different about her is she is very blond. She is the daughter of my first swarm capture this year. A few asked "is that a killer bee?"
