pollinator

Pollinators are responsible for moving pollen away from the parent plant. Examples of pollinators are insects. When an insect lands on a flower to drink the syrup, pollen rubs onto the tiny hairs and when the insect travels to another flower, the pollen falls off into the new flower. In this photo, the butterfly is the pollinator.
