Hibiscus Stigma and Anthers

Hibiscus Stigma and Anthers

I used 68mm of stacked extension tubes and a 100mm macro to get in close enough to see individual pollen grains. An anther is bursting to release its pollen just left of the stigma, and there is a solitary pollen grain visible at upper left.
