As you can tell, this photo shows the inside of a tulip flower. You'll notice the pollen on the anthers and on the petals. I like the shape of the stigma and it appears to be damp with nectar.
This yellow markings inside this tulip are a "bee target" helping to direct the workers to the source of their food. Bees see in a different color range so to them the markings may appear to be an entirely different color.
I also thrilled to have a follower of this blog! Thank you Lore for being first! What a very nice surprise - I hope we will become blogger friends. I have taken a quick look at your site (I'm supposed to be getting ready for work) and I see that you have a very artistic side. Good for you!
