    Honeybees are small, winged insects. They live in honeycombs, from where we extract honey. They have yellow and black stripes, and a plump body. Some species might even sting.

    Every bee colony has a queen, drones and workers. Workers cooperate in nest building and other tasks while the queen bee lays eggs.

    The workers are devoted to their queen, and usually mourn when she dies. After that they choose a new queen and feed her extra honey and keep her in a 'royal chamber'.
