Flower Pollination

 The flowers aren't African violets unfortunately, but this is how the seeds are made, whether in violet or any other plant that makes seeds. See the cool orange sacks on the bee's back legs? One on each side. The bee picked up this pollen at a flower somewhere and in its travels will perhaps pollinate a flower it will soon visit.
Click on the photos, they will enlarge somewhat.... See the powder/dust on the bee's eyes and wing base and legs? All that is pollen too.

How about a comment?
