[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bumble bees have long been recognized as vital to the production of certain seed crops. In recent years, bee scientists have developed a means to cause queens to skip their winter hibernation and produce colonies year-round. This has made certain species of bumble bees available for use in pollinating crops they did not before. Bumble-bee colonies are now used extensively in greenhouse pollination of crops such as tomatoes and strawberries.
