I guess these are parasites or something.

Those parasitets are nasty and you realy dont want them if you got a honey farm. Poor thing

Edit, apparently not that bad!

Thanks for the comments! Felt somewhat sorry for the bee, because it seemed very weak and all. Still had to take a shot, i've never seen a thing like this before.

I didn't see the original shot, but I saw the others and it's troublesome. Even if we are not environmentalists, our photos can contribute a great deal to raise concern, find clues or even contribute to solution to this and other dilemmas.
