100-Million-Year-Old Bee

This article is about a scientist that buys Amber to look for fossils. He found a Bee that got trapped somehow in the sticky fluid that becomes Amber. They said the bee looks different than "modern" bees and is not a precursor to the honey bee. You know...a bee is a bee...I don't really like 'em at all. However, it is cool that science can study much older insects and animals that got trapped and preserved.
