 Honeybee pollination

Honey bees and plants have a symbiotic alliance

Flowering plants and bees evolved together to provide each other with what they need to survive. The plants entice the bees with the nectar and pollen they need to feed a colony of up to 60,000 individuals. In exchange for the food, the worker bees transport pollen from one flower to another providing pollination services. This is perhaps the most beneficial relationship in the world, creating a primary food source for the web of life on earth. Honeybees are truly the crown jewels of nature.
