Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!! This month's blog circle theme is Mother's Day and I have spent the few weeks falling in love with a new mother in our family - the queen bee. Yes, I'm falling for a bug. I've never been in to bugs before, but let me geek out on bees for a minute.
The Queen bee mates only once in her life. She can lay up to 1700 eggs a day. Yes, a day! She can choose to lay a girl egg (worker) or a boy (drone). The drones are unfertilized. So they have no daddy, but they do have a grandpa.
After you check out my bugs, be sure to see Kristen Reimold's post!
