Had a few that looked like this in my hive today. Looks like they're wearing white sunglasses. They're shiny, too:

Ah, so the hipster is new in the hive- "freshly hatched". I never noticed how light they were. I was in shade, normally in bright sunlight. That was the one I was referring to. Cool!

The color and sheen off the bees will tell you a lot. When the bees are queenless the can get an oily look. Besides being grumpy its a great clue something is wrong in regards to the hive being queenright.
