Hi everyone, I am new to the site. Are there any videos that shows how pollen is collected? If yes, please post a link.

By the bees or by the beekeepers?

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

You have to use a very very small vac  to collect the pollen off the flowers and not crush them.

I've collected quite a bit of pollen in the past...only I collect it from the bees...the bees collect it from the flowers.
