A honey bee (Apis mellifera) feeding on white bryony (Bryonia cretica). The pollen basket, loaded with pollen to be taken to the hive, is visible on the bee's leg. While gathering pollen and nectar, the bee transfers pollen between flowers. Bees are important pollinators for many plants. Photographed in the UK.
