Bumblebee feeding on flowers. High-speed footage of a bumblebee (Bombus sp.) feeding on pollen and nectar from flowers. Nectar is a sugary fluid that is produced by flowers to attract pollinating insects. Insects feeding on the nectar of flowers play an important role in transferring pollen between different flowers, a process called pollination. This behaviour benefits both bee and plant, an example of a type of symbiosis called mutualism.
