Caption: Bee feeding on a flower. Female squash bee (Peponapis sp.) using her extended tongue to sip nectar from a yellow squash flower (Cucurbita pepo). Bees play an important role in cross-pollination of flowers, picking up pollen grains from a flower's anthers (seen here), and distributing them to another flower.
