Apis mellifera
Beatriz, Thank You, Ted

 
We have many
We have more honeybees in the guide than we need, so feel free to send it to frass.

 
Not from Delaware
Beatriz, I keep looking at the Data tab and I do not see Delaware on the map for this bee. If you don't mind, I like to change my mind on this and have Delaware represented. Ted

 
That is fine
I only mentioned it in case you were only interested in an ID and not in contributing to the guide. Now, I see that you are very interested in contributing and that you have some very fine images, so looking forward to your future postings.

 
Will do
Thanks, Ted
