Doing some routine inspections today I saw something that looked odd. Removing a frame to check for brood I noticed a drone coming out of its cell, so I stopped for a bit to watch it wiggle it's way out. Just so happened as the drone was free of its cell here comes the queen, at which point she looked to me like she was attacking the drone. She proceeded to climb on top of it and it looked like she was attempting to sting it but I did not see any stinger coming out. The drone made no attempts to fight back it just kinda walked around. Any thoughts as to what I was seeing?

If I was thinking a little I would of taken the time to snap a pic with the smartphone, lol, what did we do 20 years ago without our smartphones.
