ocelliBEE FACT  1 – Bees have 5 eyes; those two big compound eyes we all notice and three eyes called “ocellus” at the base of the antenna. Ocellus are photoreceptors that orient the bee to the sun so she can return to the hive and return to your flowers for more nectar.

Ocellus are not independent visual organs and never occur in species that lack compound eyes. So if you see an insect with compound eyes you can be sure ALL of their eyes are focused on getting away from you!   More info at NCSU Entomology or my Pinterest Bees & Design
