More Than Meets the Eye

Amaryllis and pollen above, hibiscus and pollen below.

I posted the two flower images recently; yesterday afternoon I got my microscope out to look at the pollen from each. Wow, what a difference! Both flowers have their own distinct pollen as do all the other flowering plants. Not only are the flowers beautiful, their pollen proves that there is much more to the flowers than meets the eye.
