Caption

Honey bee leg. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the hind leg of a honeybee (Apis mellifera). The dense coating of hairs are used to collect pollen. At top centre is the pollen basket (orange), which the bee packs with pollen to carry back to the hive. Pollen left on the legs may be brushed off onto the stigma of flowers the bee visits, pollinating the flowers.
