Herb – Bee!

As I walk through the spaces of my school, one more copy of orchid! Ophrys apifera! The orchid uses the flowers to attract the insects to pollinate their flowers and as the orchids do not have nectar, the disguise and the scent of the flowers is attractive for some insects that try to mate with the "insect flowers" and, in the process, pollinate the flowers. This phenomenon was studied by Charles Darwin, who in 1885 published a work on pollination of orchids.
