Caption: Bee pollination. Macrophotograph of a honey bee (Apis mellifera) feeding on a flower's nectar. The bee's proboscis (centre) can be seen. As the bee feeds on nectar in the flower, pollen (yellow) becomes attached to it. Pollen grains are the male sex cells of a flowering plant. When the bee flies to a new flower of the same species to feed, some pollen is deposited on the female parts of the flower, fertilising them. Magnification unknown.
