Which of the following would NOT be a good example of prezygotic reproductive isolation?

Two bird species live in the same area and, though similar in plumage, engage in dramatically different courtship dances.

Two frog species meet and can mate with each other, but the hybrid offspring are infertile.

Two plant species each have wind-dispersed pollen that lands on the stigmas and grows a pollen tube through the ovary of either species; however, in hybrid matings, the sperm is not recognized by the egg and cannot fertilize the ovum.

Two beetle species are superficially similar in appearance, but the structure of the male penis and the female genitalia prevents males from one species from copulating with females of the other.
