the hand of a plant wants you by Dancing-Treefrog the hand of a plant wants you by Dancing-Treefrog
an early morning macro shot of a red hibiscus, proudly offering its decorative spirals of pollen to incoming pollinating insects, while the five-fingers of the business end wait to brush off and gather any pollen the insect might have brought with it from another hibiscus.

i like the detail of the pollen, especially the spiral chains hanging down from the bottom of the stamen or pistel (I forget which it is), the strong colors and the way the yellow sharpness stands out. and the drama of the "hand" reaching.
