Caption: Pollination. Macrophotograph of a white-tailed bumble bee, Bombus lucorum, visiting a flowering hedgehog cone plant, Echinacea purpurea. Insects such as bees feed on the sugary fluid (nectar) and pollen found in flowers. The bee is attracted to flowers by their bright colours. As it reaches inside the flower to gather the nectar with its tube-like proboscis, the bee may become dusted with pollen. The bee may also brush pollen from another flower onto this flower's reproductive organs causing cross-pollination. Magnification: x3 at 6x4. 5cm size. x2 at 35mm
