Flying bee (superfamily Apoidea), seen head-on. The large compound eyes of this insect (black, shiny, upper centre) and its long sensory antennae (centre left and right) are seen here. Bees feed on the nectar and pollen produced by flowering plants. They are important pollinators, carrying pollen between plants on their hairy bodies and back legs.
