Brain-teaser: Can you spot the bee in the flowers?

Here at Direct Blinds, we love a brain-teaser and recent research by the University of Exeter and King’s College London has found that adults who regularly challenge their brain have better recall and brain function equivalent to 10 years younger than their age.

Our latest puzzle features a bee hidden among the flowers and as well as providing a bit of fun, has a serious message about the importance of bees.

Bees are vital to the planet’s ecosystem as they pollinate about three quarters of plants. Pesticides, parasites, disease and habitat loss has resulted in a decline in the bee population.

Alan Read, founder of environmental services business AMES Group, commented:

“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. 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.”

We’re sure this blind will bring a source of entertainment into your home. Some of us can spot it easily while others are completely baffled!

See below for the answer.
