Answer

The bee's knees

When bees climb inside a cup of a flower, pollen sticks to their bodies. The bees then carefully comb this off and transfer it to pollen sacks on their back legs. The most widely supported view is that the expression refers to the delicate way in which the bees bend their knees as they perform this operation.
