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.

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

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.
