A honey bee clinging to a pollen grain - as if afraid of falling down!

This photo is of a honey bee clinging to a pollen grain. I haven't seen a similar photo and this could be a one of its kind. You can also see white pollen grains sticking to its body. When it flies to another flower, the pollen grains on its body will be transferred and help fertilise the flower.
