Caption: The gray flesh fly Sarcophaga carnaria pollinates a Marguerite daisy plant. This fly, closely re- lated to the blue-bottle fly, gathers nectar from the centre of this daisy after having visited another daisy flower. Pollen grains caught on the body and proboscis mouthpart of the fly are trans- ferred from flower to flower as it feeds. The red compound eyes of Sarcophaga are clearly seen.
