How do bees see?

Hello,

I am reading through my cognitive neuroscience book and I am currently learning about area V4.  Apparently if this site is manipulated we see in grey-scale.  I just watched the BBC's "seeing is believing" and learned that bees are very similar in vision.  So I ask, "do bees also have a distinct V4, and if they do I assume they would also see in greyscale, am I correct?". As well, could this contribute to problems with  pollination? 

Thank-you for your time,
Matthew O'Hara from University of Guelph, Ontario, CA.

What do you think?
