Caption: Macrophotograph of a honey bee (Apis mellifera) on a flower of the ox-eye chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria). The pollen basket, loaded with pollen to be taken to the hive, is visible on the bee's knee and its tongue is extended as if drinking nectar. While gathering pollen and nectar the bee transfers pollen from the anther of one flower to the stigmatic surface of another.
