Caption: Macrophotograph of Timothy grass, or Cat's-tail, Phleum pratense, showing an inflorescence or flowering shoot. Visible are the anthers (canoe- shaped) suspended by threadlike stamens, which together form the male reproductive organ. The anthers are the pollen-producing structures. They can be seen here packed with as yet unripe pollen. The stigma (white furry structure) is the pollen receiving organ, which forms part of the female reproductive apparatus. Timothy is a common roadside, pasture & waste- ground grass that flowers from June to August. The pollen is dispersed by wind & is a cause of the allergy hayfever. Magnification X1.5 (at 35mm
