I have a boardman feed on my hive currently. While I was changing the jar I noticed a larger bee inside. Before I could check it out though a few ladies decided to fly up my shorts. By the time I got that sorted out the larger bee was no where to be found. Was this most likely a drone or could it have been the queen? I don't think the queen would have any reason to be down there would she? If it was her would she have just crawled back inside?

I would say it was most likely a drone.
