How does pollination occur?

Pollination occurs when pollen is moved within flowers or carried from flower to flower by pollinating animals. Wind pollination also occurs but only with some species of plants. The act of pollination fertilizes an egg which then produces a fruiting body which usually surrounds some type of seed which is used for producing the next generation of the food we and other organisms eat.
