Caption: Gladiolus flower anther. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains (yellow) on a gladiolus flower (Gladiolus sp.) anther. One of the pollen grains is stuck to the anther by a mucus-like substance. Anthers are part of a plant's male reproductive system. They produce the male gametes (sex cells), pollen grains. The ribbed edges (orange) of the anther split open to release the pollen. The pollen grains fertilise ovaries, the female gametes. Magnification: x700 when printed at 10 centimetres tall.
