[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the answer to the question: 'how do bees pollinate?'

They do it just like this!

First they unknowingly collect pollen from stamina (male reproductive organs of a flower) while feasting on their favorite nectar - that's how flowers lure pollinators :).
The pollen sticks to the hair on the bee's body.

Then the bee moves on and...if you want to know what happens next go here:

Bonjour Rafal,
Très belles couleurs et luminosité, dommage pour la netteté.
Belle réalisation.


Witaj Rafał
Bardzo dobre zdjęcie. Dobrze skomponowane i z dobrą ekspozycją. Poza tym dobra ostrość. No i krótka, ale dobra notka.

Hi Rafal!

Superb macro, showing all details very well, no need for words on the action for sure other than 'like this'! I posted a bee shot yesterday but far not nice as yours, TFS!

Best regards,
