Did she say Pollen?
Yup, I say pollen can be an amazingly interesting thing, not to mention stunningly gorgeous. There was an awesome article by Rob Dunn and Martin Oeggerli in National Geographic entitled Love is in the Air. Trust me on this – it is SO interesting and the images from a scanning electron microscope of different grains of pollen are so stunning, you won’t be able to put it down! Check it out.
This photo shows yellow grains of pollen on the stigma of a Geranium flower.
And this one shows Pine pollen, which coats your car with that yellow dust each spring and makes allergy sufferers miserable. Who’d have thought it would be so attractive?
