a honey bee i met this week

Did you know they have five eyes? YES FIVE. The ones visible in this picture are the insect compound “gold standard” variety. However, they have three more on top of their head that sense light only – allowing them to detect danger from above. NEAT! 

This lady lives at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
