The honey bee manages to find its way into children’s hearts by being a constant companion of the brightest flowers in the garden. Their structure incites wonder into young minds especially if they encounter it for the first time. While learning to draw its structure, they gain knowledge on the basic body parts of any insect.
Step 1: Draw a circle for the head, another partly visible one for the thorax and an elongated structure for the abdomen.
Step 2: Sketch the pair of wings that resemble tear drops. The wing on the other side of the body is almost covered by the one in the front.
Step 3: Draw the delicate patterns on the wings.
Step 4: A circle almost at the center of the head signifies an eye and a pointed structure in the front represents the mouth.
Step 5: Complete the eye with an inner circle and give shape to the slender antennae arising from its forehead.
Step 6: Sketch the jointed middle and forelegs on the side of the body facing the reader.
Step 7: The hind leg is stretched a bit more than the others. Follow that up by drawing the foreleg on the other side of the body.
Step 8: Similarly draw the partially secluded other two legs for that side of the body.
Step 9: Double lines signify the segments on the abdomen.
Step 10: Finish by darkening the eye and putting tiny hairs all over the body.
Step 11: Color in an interesting combination of black and yellow.
The next time kids hear the buzzing sound of bees they will take care to note the intricate parts of its tiny body. However, knowing very well that they sting, they should keep a safe distance from the winged creature.
