Honey Bee

Apis Mellifera

Description:

A female honey bee from an approximately three year old nest in my oak tree sucks nectar from white pentas. Honey bees are unable to see the color red from the visible light spectrum but they do see ultra violet light which makes the white color of the flowers stand out.
