Caption: Macrophotograph of a worker bumble bee Bombus terrestris feeding on the nectar of a dandelion flower Taraxacum officinale. The proboscis of the bee can be seen among the stamens of the flower, seeking out the nectary glands. As the bee forages for food it collects pollen on the hairs of its body, which are then carried from flower to flower. Some of the grains may be brushed off onto the stamens of another plant, thereby pollinating the flower.
