- Your description states that bees are furry. But take a look at a photo I took. I thought it was a European bee sitting on a sort of cactus. When I checked it out on my computer, I was a little surprised. This bee has no fur and its head is very dfferent from any bee I have seen. I have been hoping to get a better photo, but I haven't seen it again. Would love to know which bee it is and why it isn't furry.
