Caption: Bee pollination. Macrophotograph of an Africanised honey bee (AHB) or African killer bee (Apis mellifera scutellata or adansonii) after pollinating a flower (bottom centre). The bee moves from flower to flower drinking nectar and collecting pollen for food. Pollination may occur if some of the pollen from one species is later deposited on a flower of the same species. AHBs were created in Brazil by breeding African and European honey bees together in order to increase honey production. However they escaped into the wild in 1956 and have now spread up Central America to the US. They are extremely aggressive when defending their nest. Magnification unknown.
