A Himalayan honeybee caught on a glove

The Himalayan honeybee (Apis Laboriosa) is the largest honeybee in the world. They are found in the high hills of the Himalayas and their 'red honey' produced during spring contains intoxicating properties due to the poisonous nectar of white rhododendrons that grow in these high altitudes.
