Why Has this Bee Landed on this Flower?
This is a photo from Botany Photo of the Day. The flower is Crepis barbigera.
Why is the bee visiting this flower? What is the evolutionary advantage of attracting bees? You may think you know the answer but you will be surprised by the comment at the bottom of the posting on the Botany Photo of the Day website. Nothing in biology is simple.
