THEN the honeybee seemed to "pounce" on the nomal bee and they started chasing each other all round the garden before shooting off someplace else!

Can anyone explain this rather alarming happening? :llama:

Some sort of mating ritual?

But they were two different sorts of bees. Can bees interbreed?

I saw two big, fat bees earlier. It's a long time since I've seen two bees in the same place at the same time. :happy:
