[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Honey Bee inadvertently carries pollen from one flower to another in yet another example of the intricate workings of Mother Nature. Without bees and butterflies attraction to the nectar in flowers, pollenation would not occur and trees and plants would not bear fruit nor produce seeds.

Hi Jim, Great shot of the bee with the pollen grains attached all over. Nice focus and DOF. Well done. Cheers, Irmgard

I don't remember seeing this one before. Excellent! The pollen on the bee is the best part.
Did you know that flowers look different to bees and butterflies than to us? They see an ultraviolet pattern called a nectar guide. There are some sites on the internet where you can see what they see.
