This is at least bee related, every year Nikon sponsors what it calls ‘Small World Photomicrography’ contest.  The photos can be viewed at:

This year’s winter is “honey bee eye with dandelion pollen grains, 120x”.  The following goes with the photo, as reported in Microscopy and Microanalysis, Issue 140, November/December 2015:

A reflected light microscopy image of a honey bee eye covered in dandelion pollen grains has won the 2015 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Contest.

Judges were particularly impressed with how Ralph Grimm had captured this image stack, which included more than four hours of careful work to mount the eye, set the focus increments, illuminate the subject and avoid peripheral smudging during the stacking process.

Grimm, a high school teacher and former beekeeper based in Queensland Australia, hopes his image will raise the profile of this endangered species that plays a critical function in pollinating the world’s crops.

If you want to go directly to that image and not bother with the other photos use the link below.   But they are worth a look!!
