Caption: Bee head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of an unidentified bee (superfamily Apoidea). Its compound eyes (centre left & right) and antennae (upper left) are seen. The mouthparts (centre) hide a long proboscis that is used to feed on the nectar of flowering plants. The bee is an important pollinator, carrying pollen between flowers on its hairy legs and body. Magnification: x28 at 6x7cm size.
