Caption: Pollination. Macrophotograph of a honey bee worker (Apis mellifera) on a lavatera flower (Lavatera sp.). Insects such as this bee feed on the sugary fluid (nectar) and pollen found in flowers. The bee is attracted to the flower by its bright colouration. By reaching inside the flower to gather the nectar with its tube-like proboscis, the bee has become dusted with pollen (yellow). The bee may also brush pollen from another flower onto this flower's reproductive organs causing cross-pollination. Photographed in Devon, England. Magnification unknown.
