The Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera melifera) or “European” Honey Bee colored pencil portrait is complete. This tiny colonial animal provides us with roughly one third of the food we eat. Without these marvelous animals, much of the food the world enjoys would not be available. They also make honey, which is pretty amazing in itself.
