Honey Bee Step-by-Step Drawing Tutorial

A honey bee (or honeybee) is any member of the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax. Currently, only seven species of honey bee are recognized, with a total of 44 subspecies, though historically six to eleven species are recognized. The best known honey bee is the Western honey bee which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination. Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the roughly 20,000 known species of bees. Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, including the stingless honey bees, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees. The study of bees, which includes the study of honey bees, is known as melittology.

“Busy Bee” Song lyrics

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee;
Whiling away all the passing hours
Pinching all the pollen from the cauliflowers.
I’d like to be a busy little bee,
Being as busy as a bee can be.
Flying around the garden brightest ever seen,
Taking back the honey to the dear old queen.

(Chorus): Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don’t sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Buzz if you like, but don’t sting me!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee.
Toying with the tulips, tasting every type,
Building up the honey-comb that looks like tripe.
I’d like to be a busy little bee,
Being just as busy as a bee can be,
Flying all around in the wild hedgerows,
Stinging all the cows upon the parson’s nose!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee,
Visiting the picnics quite a little tease,
Raising little lumps on the maiden’s knees.
I’d like to be a busy little bee
Being with the butterfly strong upon the wing.
Whooppee! O death, where is thy sting?

(Chorus): Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don’t sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Buzz if you like, but don’t sting me!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A nice obedient busy busy bee,
To be a good bee one must contrive,
For bees in a beehive must behive.
But maybe I wouldn’t be a bee,
Bees are allright when alive you see,
But when bees die you really should see ’em
Pinned on a card in a dirty museum.

Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don’t sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but if you sting me I’ll wack ye
With this dirty great newspaper!
