Bees have Tongues?

Bee Trio

Bee Trio

Who knew bees has tongues and that they were so interesting. I went hiking at Prairie State Park last week in Missouri.  Always a fun place to go and check out the wildflowers.  As I was hiking I looked down and there were 3 bees all lined up on a leaf.

Bees Tongue

Bees Tongue

As I looked closely the largest bee at the top was sticking what I found out to be was his tongues  getting something delish off the leaf.  Was so much fun watching him.  When I got back to the office and looked close, the tongue was so cool and there was even a reflection in it.  Who knew….

Want to know a little more about bees tongues?  Bees need long tongues so that they can reach into flowers to where the nectar is. The bees’ tongue works like a straw and the bee unrolls her tongue and dips it into a flower or in this instance down to collect something from that leaf.
