Caption: High-speed footage of honey bees (Apis mellifera) in flight. The central bee is carrying a large amount of pollen (yellow) in the pollen baskets on its back legs. Pollen baskets are a specialised structure on the legs that the bees use to carry pollen from flowers back to the hive, where it is used to feed young developing bees in the colony.
