Stamens at attention!

Stamens at attention!, a photo by andiwolfe on Flickr.

Yesterday morning there was no breeze and so I did some photographic studies in the garden. This is a macro photo of the stamens of a yellow day lily I have growing in the back garden. I like to covert images to black and white by using Silver Efex Pro. Black and white photos can bring out details that are lost in the colors of a regular digital image.

The close-up of the anthers reveals individual pollen grains ready to be dispersed by a pollinator.
