While inspecting my beehives this morning, I was struck by the mosaic of differently-colored pollen packed in the brood nest. I quickly grabbed my camera, assembled an impromtu field studio, and took the following capture:

Bees mix incoming pollen with honey to form a sort of “bee bread” that serves as protein-rich food for developing larvae. The various colors reflect the source plants.

On uploading this image to facebook, several people inquired about prints. So I am temporarily bringing back the 70%-off sale pricing for just this photo, and just until June 12th. If you’d like pollen to hang on your wall, visit here and click the “buy” button:

I recommend the lustre paper and the 3/4″ standout mount.
