Best Answer

A bee has concave depressions on the tibia of her hind pair of legs surrounded by hairs. These are called corbiculae or 'pollen baskets'. When pollen gets on to the bee's body she brushes it back using her fore legs into the corbucilae.

You can often see this when a bee is in flight or standing on a flower. Look for a yellow 'lump' on the back legs.
