The ability of protea to attract nectar-seeking birds is one of their greatest advantages.  In South Africa’s Cape Floral Kingdom protea are primarily bird-pollinated, and it is common to see the beaks and heads of birds covered in pollen that is being transferred between flowers.  In fact, cross-pollination causes many natural hybrids. 💕🌷🕊#protea #attraction #pollution
