Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee inspects a royal cell filled with royal jelly. Royal jelly is essential for the development of a colony. This secretion mixed with pre-digested pollen is produced by the pharyngeal glands of the young nursing bees. It is an exceptional nutrient allowing bee larvae to grow at a pace with no equivalent in the rest of the animal kingdom.
