Bees don't just carry their honey, they actually make
mid-flight! When bees find flowers, they can take either pollen or
nectar to store and eat later. This may sound kind of gross, but in
either case they will carry it right in their mouths! If it's pollen,
then not much happens 'til they get back to their hive, but if it's
nectar then the enzymes and other chemicals in the bees' saliva will
turn the nectar into honey. The reason that this is important is
because nectar goes bad very easily but honey can be stored for a long
