Off with her head! An interloper is beheaded (guard flies off with the head), then the body is kicked to the curb.
The scuffle was recorded by Scout Bee and it is very impressive as it looks like the last guard waves goodbye to the writhing body before it rolls off the edge. It reminded us of the famous scene This is Sparta, from the movie “300”!
In any case, as brutal as it may seem, honey bees are still wild animals who must defend their nests; this type of stuff happens all day, every day, in bee yards. Like us, honey bees have a variety of moods, reactions, jobs, communication styles, etc. There is a real sentience and complexity in their lives beyond cute bee and honey pictures.
We hope you enjoyed FoodsCross gif as much as the original video by Scout Bee.
