About Fauna - Honey Bee

The body of the honey bee (Apis mellifera) consists of the head, the thorax, which carries three pairs of legs and two pairs of thin wings, and the abdomen. She flies from flower to flower, collecting plant nectar and pollen, which she brings to the hive. She bites with the front of the mouthpart, while the back part is the feeler that the bee uses to suck up liquid. There are five eyes above the mouthpart, which can detect some colors (blue, yellow and ultraviolet). She stores the nectar in baskets i.e. in depressions with hairs on her legs. The glands that secrete the honeycomb building material are located on the abdomen, which consists of nine rings. The abdomen ends in a jagged stinger, the bees' only defense.
