Godzilla and the bees

Aside from this year's magnificent purple blooms, the most eye-catching rhody phenomena today was a single honey bee, among the usual squadrons of pollen foragers, that was a standout size-wise. For awhile we were ready to depart from conventional wisdom, or more correctly science, thinking that we photographed a queen bee collecting pollen.

As soon as we Googled it later we were set straight, that apart from swarms, the queens never leave the hives.
