[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Honey bees are a subset of bees which represent a far smaller fraction of bee diversity than most people suspect; of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees, there are only six to eleven species (depending on the authority) within the tribe Apini, all in the genus Apis, and all of which produce and store liquified sugar ("honey") to some degree.

I took this photo in a sunflower field and it clearly shows how bees pollinate flowers. I know it is not a true macro, but I could not resist making use of the different bright colours.
