Caption: Pollination. Computer illustration showing how a bee (superfamily Apoidea) pollinates a flower. Insects such as this bee feed on the sugary fluid (nectar, orange) and pollen (yellow) found in flowers. The bee is attracted to the flower by its bright colouration. By reaching into the flower to drink the nectar with its tube-like proboscis (at left), the bee becomes dusted with pollen from the male stamens (5 seen). When the bee feeds on another flower (at right) it may brush pollen from the first flower onto the tip, or stigma, of this flower's female reproductive organ (tall green structure) causing cross-pollination.
