The queen bee

The queen bee only sees daylight once in her life, the day she mates. Its a wild affair with multiple drones. The rest of her days, she lives in darkness. I image=ine, at times, she can see through a small hole in the hive, maybe a bit of sun and the horizon.

Here are large-format photos taken from a pinhole in an active beehive at the former landfill / future park of Hyllie in Sweden.
