Bees visit flowers, collect nectar and convert it into a golden-yellow aromatic viscous fluid called honey, which is aptly called the liquid gold of nature. There is nothing comparable to honey, whether natural or manmade. It is a complete food made and stored by honeybees for use by the whole colony during lean period.
Honey bee workers possess remarkable ability and stamina to collect nectar and pollen from flowers and convert it into honey and bee bread. To make 500 grams of honey, bees have to extract nectar from more than 4 million flowers, for which they have to make about 50,000 trips of the foraging area of 5 km radius, which would come to roughly 5 times the circumference of earth. Workers of a single bee colony collectively make approximately 2-3 million flower visits in a day.
