Above you see the queen bee who is
 the "mother" of the hive, she lays 
approximately 2,000 eggs per day in the summer time, almost none during winter. 
  You can see here how very much larger she is than the worker bees whosurround her, workers keep her fed and cleaned her one and only job is to lay egges. Workers surround her at all times attending to her needs, isn't that amazing!!??
