Macro Photos of Bees’ Heads
From the USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab’s Flickr page come these amazing photos of bees’ heads. Photographed by Sam Droege, these photos offer a glimpse into the micro world of bees that most never see.
Ed note: This new sperm bank for honey bees could help fight colony collapse disorder.
