Androecium on Flickr.
Dedicated to David Prifti, who first taught me photography, and has inspired me ever since.
“Androecium (from Greek andros oikia: man’s house): the next whorl (sometimes multiplied into several whorls), consisting of units called stamens. Stamens consist of two parts: a stalk called a filament, topped by an anther where pollen is produced by meiosis and eventually dispersed.”
Shot with the AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Lens on the Nikon D300 Camera using mostly side lighting, with a wee bit of fill.
