Very nice. As I understand it, many plants have anthers that are designed to dab pollen on an insects head or top of the body. Then they go onto the next flower. Also, they can have the female pistil at the same location, so the pollen is delivered on target. All inadvertent from the insects standpoint. Finally, to avoid self-pollination a flower will mature their male and female parts at different times. Flowers are ingenious.
Mark, it's all billions of years in the making although plants are just a mere 450-million years or so.
