Lake Placid - New York - Garden Flower with Bumble Bee & Beetle
All pollinators, both insects and vertebrates, visit flowers to get something out of them for themselves. This may be nectar, pollen or both. During this visit pollen lands on the body, after which it may accidentally land on the stigma of either the same flower or another flower. This is also true for the bumble bee.
POLLINATION BY HONEY BEES.
