There is only one female to a hive and that is the Queen Bee. The drones or males are out there gathering food for the queen.

Very True Tony.....
Nope, youre wrong there. All bees in a hive are actually females except for the drones. The drones do not work at all, They dont even eat by themself, but are fed by the workers(female) All they do (the lucky ones) is occasionally mate with the queen. Then they die. The little , female, working bees are during a period,towards autumn, very busy with pushing them out or dragging the corpses out of the hive. Drones that dont leave voluntarily are killed by the busy little females. The working bees are the ones responsible for gathering pollen and nektar and feeding the queen (and the drones). Also interesting is that the drones(male) dont have a stinger, so they are both harmless and defenseless. (and pretty lazy)
I think your photo is really beautiful. But it shoves a female worker. Shes had a productive life witch you can see on the torn wingtips.

Workers would have been females but the queen's feromon blocks them and they got less royal jelly than queen so they can't be evolve completely.

Sometimes when the queen get lost from beehive some of the workers started to lay eggs. But the fake queens can't maintain the hive and sooner or later it collapses. In that state the hive could only produce drones...

After such a hard, productive life....what a way to go, ending up being dinner for a spider.

I agree, it is a beautiful photograph.
