We know bees as “pollinators,” meaning, they help plants survive and reproduce by transferring pollen between different flowering plants like flowers. They collect pollen on their feet and body and carry it from flower to flower, helping to create what is considered a “genetic variety” by distributing different genes across many plants and flowers.
Bees are interdependent on flowers for food consisting of pollen and nectar. It can be later modified and stored as honey. Bees fly from flower to flower and collect small amounts of pollen, which they rub on their bodies and deposit on the flowers they land on. This loss of pollen is significant, for it often results in a cross-pollination of plants.
Today’s story is about an adorable bee species of bee that Joe Neely came across. When he and his wife went to capture a bunch of poppy flowers near the highway they seemed to have been snuggling together.
Suddenly, his wife was captivated by an orange Globe Mallow plant which gave out small buzzing noise, and turns out, he saw, bees there were inside these flowers who were not moving.
“According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the forest service stated that these bees belonged to the species of “Diadasia diminuta” and that their nests are usually found in compacted soil along dirt roads.”
