Queen bee lays egg while drone bee watches.

Queen bee lays egg. I took this photo a few days ago while working in my bee yard. the queen lays up to 3000 eggs a day. here she is laying one of many while a drone bee (male bee with big eyes) looks on. she’s laying the egg on a nice frame of honeycomb. the workers bees (female bees) are filling the cells on the left side of the frame with nectar (slowly turning it into honey).
