|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
|As bees gather pollen and nectar, what do they dream about - perhaps the next flower? |
Apis mellifera was introduced to North America from Europe as a pollination species. Bees are capable of seeing ultraviolet light that is invisible to humans. They can navigate even on cloudy days using ultraviolet light that penetrates the clouds.
Honeybees are in danger of disappearing due to farming practices that disturb the natural habitat. The honeybee is under attack from the varroa mite and it is only the treatment and care provided by beekeepers that is keeping colonies alive. Most wild honeybee colonies have died out as a result of this disease.

Wow ! I like very much this composition. The bee is very clear and well detailled. The good DOF give a nice background. The colors are beautiful aslo.
Thanks for sharing Greg.
Very nice shot of the honey bee. I didn't know they were in such danger of extinction. Do you know if the mite infestation been a recent occurence?
The purple flowers make for a beautiful BG. Very nicely done :-) TFS!
Such a GREAT shot!
Very difficult to do!
Perfect details of the bee!
