Hang On!!!!!!

I had just finished the 150 mile drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff after class last Friday, got out of my car and found this little guy clinging to the roof of the car. How he hung on for 2 and a half hours at speeds of 80 miles per hour I don't know. I guess he heard about how cool Flagstaff is and just had to make the trip.

BTW, I have no idea what that white stuff is on his back. Gross!

He looks like a "research" honey bee. One marked to see where he shows up. This will be or would be a remarkable find if you could tell the owners where he is or was.

They often put a touch of color on insects for ID purposes.

Wow! That's a hardy bee. Glad he survived the journey, although life may be hard for him without his buddies at the hive.
