There's nothing like a good brain-teasing puzzle, and this one is sure to get you thinking. Can you spot the bee among the colourful flowers in the optical illusion above? How long will it take you?
Created by Swift Direct Blinds, the puzzle aims to raise awareness of the important role bees play in the planet's eco-system. With pesticides, parasites, disease and habitat loss increasing the rapid decline of bees, it's important we do all we can to help the species thrive.
"Bees are considered the most important group of insects as far as pollination of plants is concerned. Pollinators have a huge impact on the crops produced by the agriculture industry throughout the world," Alan Read, founder of environmental services business AMES Group says.
"Crops such as apple, alfalfa, berries, cantaloupes, broccoli, rape seed oil seed, almonds, cotton etc. are all bee pollinated and were it not for bee’s production, such crops would be severely diminished. 30% percent of cultivated crops and around 90% of wild plants are pollinated by honeybees."
David Roebuck, Managing Director at Swift Blinds Direct also commented on the puzzle, saying: "Brainteasers and optical illusions are always a hit around the office and to be able to tie in with such an important cause is great. The hidden bee has really stumped a lot of people! We hope the blind generates some fun and a talking point among people and raises some awareness at the same time."
