Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - Children of the sun, a hive's activity is intense when the temperature rises above 15° Celsius and when the flowers produce an abundance of nectar. The nectar is secreted by the flowers to attract the insects who thus ensure the flowers' reproduction by transporting the pollen from the pistils to the stamens.
