Buzz: The Nature and Necessity of Bees  - Thor Hanson

"It's not that I don't like Apis mellifera," he explains on his university website, using the honeybee's scientific name. But when people ask him questions about honeybees, he points out, it's like "asking an ornithologist a question about chickens."
