Mutualistic Symbiosis: The Ruby Throated Humming Bird and the Cardinal Flower

Mutualistic Symbiosis: The Ruby Throated Humming Bird and the Cardinal Flower
These two species benefit from each other by providing a way for the flower to pollinate, providing the hummingbird nutrition. This happens when the hummingbirds head touches the flower as it reaches for the nectar. The pollen from the flower sticks to the head of the bird- it is then taken to another flower via Ruby Throated Humming Bird.
