Happy #pollinatormonday from the most charismatic of all pollinators: the honeybee. The highly adaptable honeybee makes its home on every continent in the world, with the exception of Antarctica. This honeybee is lightly dusted with pollen, a result of visiting up to 2,000 flowers per day in the summertime. Honeybees are masters of communication and can alert other bees in their hive of the location of food and other resources by performing a complex movement called the “waggle dance”. The bee will “waggle” its body in relation to the resource’s location using the sun as an orientation point, and will have different movements and speeds for the distance and direction of the food. If the sun changes its location in the time it takes the bee to return to the hive, it knows to account for this change and will still convey correct information to its coworkers. The other workers in the hive read this information and can then work together to bring the resources back to the hive. The language of honeybees is regarded as the most complex and symbolic of all animal communications, and scientists still don’t fully understand the depth of its complexity. Austrian ethologist Karl von Frisch was the first to crack the code of the waggle dance and won the Nobel Prize for this eye-opening discovery in 1973. This little bee’s job is to forage all day, but despite all its hard work, a single honeybee will only produce about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its entire lifetime. Honey packs a powerful punch, though, as just an ounce of it could fuel a single bee to fly all the way around the world. Now that’s efficiency!

Las #ABEJAS recogen el #POLEN de las #flores con sus PATAS y lo humedecen con NÉCTAR dándole forma de pequeñas bolas que transportan a la colmena para alimentar a las abejas obreras. Mediante estos viajes de flor en flor contribuyen a la #POLINIZACIÓN de muchas especies. Las #abejasmeliferas, han desarrollado en el TERCER PAR de PATAS una especie de CESTAS, también denominadas #corbiculas, a las que por medio de PEINES trasladan los granos de polen que se adhieren a su cuerpo, los cuales son transportados a la #colmena, donde se realiza todo el proceso de fermentación. Entre las #abejas sólo las corbiculadas acumulan y se alimentan de polen, lo que hacen tanto en estado adulto como larvario...
The #BEES collect the #POLLEN from the #flowers with their LEGS and moisten it with NECTAR giving it the shape of small balls that they transport to the hive to feed the worker bees. Through these trips from flower to flower they contribute to #POLLINATION of many species. #HONEYBEES, have developed in THIRD PAIR OF PAWS a kind of BASKETS, also called CORBICULES, to which by means of PEINES move the pollen grains that adhere to your body, which are transported to the hive, where the whole fermentation process is carried out. Among the bees only corbiculadas accumulate and feed of pollen, what they do in both adult and larval stages...💝🐝🙏💚

This weekend's cold temperatures have me fearing that my flowers won't be around much longer. As much as I'm looking forward to the holidays with friends and family and the slower pace of the new year, I'm so sad that I won't be able to look out the window and see the beautiful blossoms. ⠀

It seems that after years from its first finding in Italy the production of chestnuts is officially returning to rise... well done Torymus sinensis :-) More pictures on: http://www.riftia.eu/biological-war/
