Honey Bee in the Field
As they fly from flower to flower, worker honey bees collect pollen grains in a special "basket" located on the hind leg. Pollen, the main food source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and fat, is necessary to the development of queen, worker, and drone. Field bees place pollen directly in the cells of developing larvae when they return to the hive, where they also regurgitate nectar for its conversion into honey. яндекс.ћетрика
