A bee sees relatively clearly up close.
Its field of vision is oblong, with images stretching at the top and bottom.
If a human could look at a picture the way a bee processes it, the image might be compared to a football standing on one end.
The surface is like that of a round Christmas tree ornament and warps whatever the bee sees.
Of course, to the bee, this is normal.
Bees also have color vision, enabling them to seek out “colorful” flowers.
