Buzzing Time

Bee_Processed

This gigantic bee was spotted at an altitude of above 3,000 meters in the Himalayas. The largest social bee in the world, Apis laboriosa, is found in – fittingly – the largest mountain range in the world. While the species above is not Apis, it is, however, a telling reminder to not forget that which buzzes and crawls in our quest for flying treasures.
