Caption: Bee pollinating an aster flower (Aster amellus 'Stettin'). This bee (Bombus sp.) is pollinating a flower. As the bee sucks nectar from the flower, it rubs against the stamens - picking up grains of pollen. Each pollen grain contains a male gamete which, when depositied on another plant of the same species, can fertilise an ovule and produce seeds.
