In the desert of the American Southwest, lesser longnosed bats seek out the night blooming flowers of the Saguaro cactus. During the night, bats fly from flower to flower. While sipping nectar with their long tongues, they gather pollen on their faces. As they continue to feed they carry the pollen to other flowers and cactus, pollinating them in the process. There is a delicate nocturnal exchange between bat and flower, each uniquely suited and dependent on the other.
