Pollinator

Pollinator

The agent that moves pollen from the anthers to the stigma of another flower is a pollinator. This can simply be wind or by organisms such as birds, bees, and butterflies. The butterfly in this picture is seen feeding off the nectar from the flower on the top right hand corner. After eating, the pollen trapped on the legs of the insect will then be transferred to another flower when the butterfly flies to another plant, and thus then pollinating.
