The coloring of flowers is anything but random. In many cases, the pattern of a flower is intended to attract pollinators. These are called nectar guides, and they are colored patterns that draw a pollinator (such as a bee) to the center of the flower. The flowers pictured have a distinct, dark center that is like a bullseye for directing pollinators to their center.
