Did You Know Bee’s Have Five Eyes?

The two big eyes on a bee are called compound eyes because they are made up of thousands of tiny lenses. Each lens (called a facet) sees a small part of a scene and, all together, the lenses form an entire picture.

The three other eyes are called simple eyes or ocelli. They are at the top of the bee’s head in a triangular pattern and are very small.
After taking this picture I did a quick search. Here is the link to enough information to satisfy me of what I was looking at. It reminded me a jumping spider. https://honeybeesuite.com/my-teacher-says-bees-have-five-eyes-shes-creepy/
