Caption: Simulated bee's-eye-view of a meadow as it flies from flower to flower. Bee vision extends into the ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum, so bees can see wavelengths of light that are invisible to humans. Many flowers have patterns or markings that are only visible at these wavelengths, helping them stand out and attract bees to pollinate them. Filmed in Cwm Cou, Ceregidion, Wales, UK.
