About this work


Photomacrograph of the head of a bumble bee (Bombus). Two compound eyes (for accurate perception of movement), two long antennae and a proboscis (feeding tube used to drink nectar from flowers) are visible. Bees are important pollinators and play a crucial role in maintaining our environment, promoting the growth of crops and flowers many of which directly impact on our own health and wellbeing. Width of image is 2.5 cm.
