Caption: Pollination. View of three honeybees pollinating a Mexican sunflower, a type of wild daisy. Both daisies and sunflowers belong to the plant family Compositae which bear a composite flower-head made up of numerous tiny flowers (florets). The flower seen here is composed of yellow disc florets on which the bees are standing, surrounded by a ring of ray florets bearing the elongated red petals. These flowers are prolific sources of pollen for bees, which are attracted by the bright colour of the petals. Pollen is transferred from flower to flower, allowing cross- pollination of the female parts of the flower and subsequent seed production.
