Bees get a bad rap sometimes. Much like bats, they are seen as flying marauders who are only out to sting and destroy. There are tons of "natural" horror films featuring bees, from The Deadly Bees (1966), Killer Bees (1974), and The Swarm (1978), to name just a few. Moreover, movies like Candyman, Nicholas Cage's The Wicker Man, and Sleepaway Camp all have scary bee scenes that haven't helped their image. Plus they killed Macaulay Culkin in My Girl. But these insects aren't just integral to our ecosystem, they're pretty adorable, as the following photos of cute bees will attest.
