Strange “bee” in the hive

I was doing my usual inspection and came a cross this “Bee”? It didn’t seem to worry the other bees and they didn’t seem to worry it.

Anyone know what it is.

Looks like a regular bee drenched in honey or oil, if you are using oil in trap somewhere… can’t tell if it is longer than the surrounding workers, hopefully it’s just honey if it’s the queen…

Thanks @chau06 I know it’s not the queen as she is marked.

Regular honey bee, drenched in something as Alok said. Sure does make them look different, doesn’t it?
