16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bees and Banana Flowers

I saw a banana tree that had just started fruiting at the top, but at the bottom where there were still flowers and I saw bees buzzing around crawling up inside the flowers to feed. I followed one bee around the flowers for some time that kept disappearing up inside the flowers, it finally crawled out and I got this shot.
