Caption: Honeycomb in a frame. Honeycomb is made by a colony of honey bees (Apis mellifera), and consists of rigid hexagonal cells made from wax secretions from the worker bees' bodies. Honey is made by worker bees who ingest nectar from flowers, convert it into honey in sacs in their gut, and place it in the cells to mature. The honey can then be harvested for use in foods.
