Caption

Butterfly on flower. Macrophotograph of a butterfly (species unidentified) on a flower. Butterflies feed on the sugary nectar produced by plants, uncoiling their long probosces to suck up the fluid from glands at the base of the flower. The plant benefits by using the butterfly as an unwitting carrier of its pollen to other flowers, ensuring cross-pollination.
