It turns out that in nature there are lots of cheaters. Here a tiny stingless bee waits patiently on an eggplant flower as a Nomia bee approaches. The Nomia bee has the capability and strength to buzz pollinate this specialized flower. This involves the bee holding the flower in its “teeth” (mandibles) and vibrating it at a specific frequency using its wing muscles. Only then is pollen released. As the stingless bee is too puny to do this, it simply waits and then steals pollen that spills out after the Nomia bee has buzzed the flower.
