Dandelion Set - Image 24

I believe this image is of a section of a male pollen-producing anter on the dandelion flower. Photographed at 100x magnification under a Nikon phase contrast microscope. The small round particles seen in the image are pollen particles. View On Black

 

The first 13 images in this set show macro images of the dandelion at various stages in its reproductive cycle. The subsequent 12 images in this set of 25 focus on the microscopic structure of this fascinating "weed".
