A honey bee is a six legged flying insect that is typically yellow and black. Bees live in a bee hive with many other bees, including the queen bee. Bees also have a stinger that they can use to protect the hive. A honey bee can only sting once and it comes at the ultimate cost (its life). The queen bee's job is to lay eggs and grow the colony. In a bee's quest for flowers, nectar and pollen, bees pollinate the plants of the world. Pollination is an essential part of plant reproduction and the creation of food (e.g., fruit, nuts, seeds) made by plants. Scarily, bee populations around the world are declining quickly and we don't know why.
