Join us on a photography journey from the flower to the hive, told through detailed bee photos uploaded by the EyeEm community.

Consider the bee. Almost unnoticed, this tiny insect labors away, cross-pollinating flowers and collecting pollen. It lives in colonies of thousands, possesses a literal hive mind, and even produces the honey we so casually pour into our tea.

It’s estimated that it takes a bee more than 22,000 trips to produce a small jar of honey, making each spoonful a remarkable feat. This collection ofbee photosis our small homage to the work bees are doing everywhere these days: A journey from the flower to the hive, told through images uploaded by the EyeEm community.

We love more than just the subject here: These photos of bees also have a very unique color scheme, showing a rich array of yellow and brown tones. They are also great examples of macro photography: An average worker bee is just over a centimeter long, so you have to get really close to capture them in such detail.
