Bees are attracted to flowers by their bright colourful petals. Then they go inside the plant to feed on it's delicious nectar. While it does this, it picks up the pollen of the plant.

So when the bee travels to another plant to find more nectar, it brushes the pollen from the old plant onto the new one therby fertilizing it. This is known as pollination.

(1)

A honeybee drinks nectar, or sweet juice, from flowers. Later, it goes back to its hive.

(2)

In the hive, the bee spits out the juice. The other bees drink that juice.

(3)

In time, the bees put the juice into special places in the hive.

(4)

The bees move their wings back and forth over the juice. That makes the juice get thick.

While gathering nectar from flowers the bees get pollen all over their little bodies when they are done with flower A and fly to flower B the pollen from A gets on B and pollinates B....Is that clear?Without them, many fruits that we eat cannot be produced.
