A bee is interesting in and of itself, but that's not the whole story.
Artsy fartsy photographers will show a bee landing on a flower. One single bee. The important thing to remember that this like taking a picture of one strand of hair of William Shatner's toupée. It just doesn't tell the whole story of misery that is the actual critter, the beehive or swarm.
This is where the Borg got their culture from, the hive mind, with each little separate critter doing its job. So bees are just a bunch of little Commie insects. But the whole hive can be like Stalin, directing its wrath at any enemy that sticks its nose where it doesn't belong.
