Research notes page 1 Bees: the bees here are very different to those we are familiar with: (a few obvious points below) they are larger their stings have little or no poison they seem to lack a queen they don't die after stinging you This leads me to believe that these bees are a strange hybrid of bee and various other insects. My reasoning in this; The size, dragonflies are rather large and bees rather tiny, a combination of the bee's structure and the dragonfly's size could result in this physical difference. stings lacking poison, without the poisonous gland structure of a regular bee (poison gland is attached to vital organs) it will not kill itself by stinging its foes. this could be a result due to a cross with a wasp lacking a queen: this one is hard to explain as while they create honey and honeycomb it seems to be to nourish themselves rather than a "leader" so to speak, could be a result of a cross with many different insects, but most likely a fly All in all, these bees are very unusual with many quirks that help them survive EDIT: forgot to say feedback would be much appreciated
