Caption: Pollen grains stuck on the body of a harlequin bug (Murgantia sp.), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Pollen grains are the male sex cells of a flowering plant. They are usually carried to another flower by pollinating insects, such as bees. When the pollen rubs off on the female structures of a flower, fertilisation can occur. Magnification unknown.
