|You can see 1 of the 3 tiny simple eyes on this|
honey bee's forehead, and the 2 large compound
eyes on the sides of her head
|Honey bees can see the short-wavelength ultraviolet light |
(left), but we can see the long-wavelength red light (right)
|On the left is our view of the flower; the picture|
on the right shows us what the honey bees see!
Notice the ultraviolet nectar guides (they appear
red in this picture) on the flower on the right.
