We all know the introduced Honey Bees, that live I hives and pollinate a heap of crops and fruits we eat. 

Our native bees are much smaller, often black or dark brown and they are not “social” creatures that form a smooth-running colony in a n...

It's most important product! The internet is getting more visual, so how do you find things without keywords? Google is exploring ways to take photos and search off those - the example they use is a photo of a dress effectively being one of your search terms, then adding words to say "in green" or "shorter length".
