Caption: Pollen grain sticking to the body of a bee (superfamily Apoidea), scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Pollen grains are reproductive structures produced by the male parts of flowering plants. The grain has a textured outer wall (exine), which may assist in its dispersal by improving its adherence to pollinating insects like this bee.
