Pollinator

The bee in the photo above is a pollinator. While attempting to gain nutrients from a plant, pollen attaches to the pollinator. The pollinator then inadvertently moves pollen from the male anthers of a plant to the female  stigma while moving, which then completes the process of fertilization.
