Honey bee on a Michaelmas daisy

Pollination. Macrophotograph of a honey bee, Apis mellifera, visiting a flowering Michaelmas daisy, Aster frikartii. Insects such as bees feed on the sugary fluid (nectar) and pollen found in flowers. The bee is attracted to flowers by their bright colours. By reaching inside the flower to gather the nectar with its tube-like proboscis, the bee has become dusted with pollen (yellow). The bee may also brush pollen from another flower onto this flower's reproductive organs causing cross- pollination. Michaelmas daisies are perennial plants with mauve flowers.
