Honey Bee Heaven

A honey bee flies toward a flowering plum tree in Grangeville. The bees extract nectar and pollen from the flowers for nourishment. Pollen is collected by the bee in its pollen basket, identified in this photo as the bulging section of the legs. Their distribution of pollen also is key to successful growth of plants and crops.
