Great pic! The close up focus is amazing! I feel like I'm right there, immersed in crocus world.

It always a wonderful feeling when the first crocuses appear. Springtime!

Now I'm wondering if the crocus has a scent. I don't think it does. Tomorrow I'm going to go find some in the park and find out.

Thank you!

I don't think they have a scent, it's probably not necessary because they are the first to bloom in bright colors, so all the insects will visit them anyway.smiley - winkeye

Ah, that's interesting. No scent needed, because of bright colours.

So bees and things can sense colours? What, things? smiley - rofl The Thing approached the purple crocus.

When bees find good flowers, they go home and tell the others about it. By dancing. smiley - rofl

Yes, bees and other insects see colors. Bees see more to the ultra-violet spectrum than humans though, it helps them with navigating as they use the sun as a reference. They don't see flowers in the same colors we do, but colors still matter to them. That's also why bee hives have different colors I think, they actually see them.

Interesting! I never ever wondered before if insects see colour.

I think I'd like to be a bee. To bee or not.
