A new challenging puzzle is here to tease our brains. You may have seen other puzzles like this on the internet where you are asked to spot the cat among buildings, or pencil among books, or the dog hidden among polar bears. And now we have a puzzle where you have to find the tiny bee hidden in this garden full of flowers.
There are three different colored flowers in this image, which was shared by online florist Arena Flowers, on World Bee Day, on May 20. You might be one of the people who end up solving this puzzle in the shortest time possible, or you may take hours. Either way, it's quite easy to spot when you look closely.
There are more than 20,000 species of bees buzzing around the world, but can you find the single bee hidden in this image?
This image is full of daisies and wildflowers, but the bee is hard to spot. Have you found it yet? If not, here's a hint. Think about the place where a bee usually sits on a flower. The answer lies within. That too is a clue.

Brainteasers are great to spend some time and exercise our minds. Needless to say, this one is also pretty to look at. This puzzle draws attention to the issue of saving bees, which are crucial for any ecosystem.
According to the United States Geological Survey, there are 4,000 species of bees native to the US. These native bees pollinate native plants like cherries, blueberries, and cranberries. They were here a long time before European honeybees were brought to the country by settlers (honeybees are not native to North America). Honeybees are plenty useful since they pollinate almond and lemon trees, okra, papaya, and watermelon plants.
Have you found the bee yet? If not, here's another hint: Look to the left corner towards the bottom of the image. You might find a bee in the center of a flower there. Did you know that native bees pollinate 80% of flowering plants around the world? They are absolutely essential to our world but their numbers are dwindling. They are responsible for more than $15 billion in increased crop value each year. This is not something that can be taken lightly.
If you still haven't found the bee, here's the solution:
