Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph of a flower bud of the snapdragon, Antirrhinum majus. The sepals of the flower have been removed to show the compact structure of the flower at this early stage of development. The outer structure forms the five petals, still at this point symmetrical, although the mature flower is zygomorphic (bilaterally symmetrical). Under the petals are the four anthers, the male reproductive structures where pollen is produced. In the centre is the tip of the style, part of the female reproductive apparatus, which later forms the stigmatic surface where pollen is trapped for fertilization. Magnification: x66 at 6x4.5cm size.
