B Loose change
The correct answer is Pollen
See The Reason for That answer below:
Bees have specialized structures on their hind legs called pollen baskets or corbicula. These pollen baskets are concave areas surrounded by stiff hairs and are used by bees to transport pollen back to their hive.
When bees visit flowers in search of nectar and pollen, they collect pollen grains using their mouthparts and front legs. They then transfer the collected pollen to their hind legs, where they pack it into the pollen baskets. The bee moistens the pollen with nectar or regurgitated honey to help it stick together and make it easier to transport.
The pollen baskets are located on the tibia of the hind legs, and they vary in size depending on the species of bee. Worker bees, which are the female bees responsible for collecting pollen and nectar, have larger and more developed pollen baskets compared to other members of the colony.
The pollen stored in the baskets serves as a protein-rich food source for the bees and their developing brood (young bees) in the hive. Bees play a crucial role in plant pollination, and as they visit flowers to collect nectar, they inadvertently transfer pollen from one flower to another, aiding in the fertilization of plants.
The ability of bees to transport pollen efficiently using their specialized pollen baskets contributes to their effectiveness as pollinators and helps ensure the reproduction of many plant species.
