Poppy pollen

This is a foldscope-magnified image of the poppy pollen. The pollen appears to be small and multicolored.
The poppy from which this pollen sample was obtained. These poppies, which are likely Matilija poppies, live south of the Jorgensen building at Caltech, in Pasadena, CA. The bright orange pollen-covered stamens were harvested on 5/21/2019 at 5pm to sample the pollen for the foldscope.
