UC Davis communications specialist Kathy Keatley Garvey in the Department of Entomology said she has taken at least 1 million photos of honeybees in her lifetime, but this snapshot won the first-place gold feature photo award in an Association for Communication Excellence competition. The international organization includes communicators, educators and information technologists.

I despise bees. they infest our roof, fly into my room at night when the light is on, and swarm me.
But I do like honey. So I guess the trade off by being stung on your hands to the point your hand feels like a swollen glove pays off.
And chickens.. and sesame seeds
How can I be hungry after looking at a bee stinging some dudes arm and killing itself. Hrmm. weird things in my head tonight.
ahh well, mebbe I'll be able to sleep at some point.

Interesting photo. Your title says it's abdominal tissue. That stinger must have traveled a long way internally.
Sorry, must tease. Suggest changing it to radial or just arm tissue?

As I recall you keep bees Druid.
We are lucky to have someone with such intimate knowledge on this site. I have always been rather fascinated by bee keepers (I feel like I'm missing some sort of awesome title, though bee keeper is pretty bad ass in my opinion) it's really such a cool hobby/job.
Have you done a video/pic thread? I think you did, but I dip into the fermented honey on a regular basis. I'd really love to see the whole process. Even just a thread with pictures and explanations would be really neat. I feel like you have cool bee stories too. Do you have to suit up; the whole shebang? When you collect the honey are they pissed, or just going about bee things? Ugh I really want to look this up now, but would rather wait and see you doing it. If it's not on YouTube already show us soon!
Oh, on topic and what not. Cool picture.
