Caption: Honeybee leg. Light micrograph of the hind leg of a honeybee (Apis mellifera). The tibia and first tarsal segment of the leg (large segments, lower left and right) are covered with a dense coat of hairs which collect pollen. The bee pushes it into the pollen basket, an area of hairs on the tibia, to carry it back to the hive. Magnification: x6 at 6x7cm size.
