While the bee is taking this nectar, the pollen comes into contact with the stigma of the plant sufficient for pollination to take place. Harvesting the pollen The bee in the above example is almost an accidental pollinator: its main target is the nectar. Bees, however, also use pollen as a protein-providing food for brood and young adult, maturing bees, and so a proportion of the foraging bees collect nectar and pollen while some collect just pollen. The bee ‘combs’ itself and, by doing so, cleans out the grains and packs them into what are called the corbiculae or pollen baskets on its hind legs.

The bee may then move to the female flowers on another cucumber plant attracted by the nectar it offers. While the bee is taking this nectar, the pollen comes into contact with the stigma of the plant sufficient for pollination to take place.
