Why do flowers have pretty colors?
Some flowers have pollen that spreads with the wind. But other flowers rely on insects like bees, butterflies, or even birds to help them spread the pollen. The bright and pretty colors draw insects to the flowers to sip the sweet juice or nectar. As the insects sip on the nectar, they also brush the flower’s stamens and pick up the pollen which they carry to the next flower they sip.
