Sweet Choice. Apis cerana, Asian Honeybee, collecting Grass Pollen, Tanjung Mangsit, Lombok, Indonesia
The picture above is taken automatically from flickr.com, if there is something related to the picture please visit and contact flickr.com
Usually, of course, we associate Bees and Honey with Pretty and Colorful Flowers. We know Bees collect Nectar and Pollen for food and proteins (and for our own honey jars!). We tend to forget that Bees gather in from other plants as well.
Here are two Ladies of the Apis cerana, Common Asian Honeybee tribe, gathering in pollen from Grass Inflorescences. Look at the full corbiculas, or pollen baskets. Marvelous to behold on my favorite bluff overlooking on the one side Mangsit Beach and on the other the wide stretches of Kerandangan's Sands with in the distance across the strait fabulous Gunung Agung.
I couldn't choose which of these Bees to honor on Flickr so I opted for both. Not very good on grasses, I do think these are two different kinds: on the left Ischaemum muticum, Seashore Centipede Grass, and on the right a form of Imperata cylindrica, Lalang. I'm unsure about either, but I am sure that someone on Flickr will be able to help out if I'm off the mark.
