Geocache Description:

The Drone collection is a follow-on to the Honeybee collection to honor the drone's short, but important, role in the hive.

Drones, since they are males, have no stinger. They live about eight weeks. Only a few hundred - at most - are ever present in the hive. Their sole function is to mate with a new queen, if one is produced in a given year. A drone's eyes are noticeably bigger than those of the other castes. This helps them to spot the queens when they are on their nuptial flight. Any drones left at the end of the season are considered non-essential and will be driven out of the hive to die.

Drone #3 is off to a little more difficult spot but it shouldn't be too tough depending on when you go searching for him..

(The rating is appropriate for the season it was hidden in. It probably could be raised a notch in other seasons.)

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
