OMG! Huge FAIL!! My wife took her pictures off of iPhoto when she started to make money as a photographer. Wasn't worth the 20 cents a download to have her reputation tainted by such unprofessionalism, such as this (my opinion, not hers).

Wow, they even got the phylum wrong! How the hell does one mistake a hummingbird's wings for a fruit fly's?

Just thought of this...

Geneticists mutate the Drosophila all the time. Maybe it's an experimental escapee that now looks identical to honey bee and has behavioral conditioning to collect honey bee... aha...
