The pollen of crocuses is sticky, and bees are attracted to the flowers because of the nectar. When bees land on the crocus flowers, they transfer pollen from the stamen to the pistil. This process of pollination ensures that the crocuses are able to reproduce. This bee is about to set off for the next crocus flower.
