blooming friday: IN THE AIR

Pollination is a process by which pollen is transfered from the stamen to the upper tip of the pistil of a flower. Ninety percents of plants requires man, animals, and insects for pollination. For pollination to take place, flowers has to be aerial enough for bees and butterflies to hover, sniff and dive in for the sweet nectar. During such frenzy, pollens are gathered on the legs and get transferred to the pistil, for pollination, a necessary step for fertilization.
