Caption: Gorse (Ulex europaeus) petal surface, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This surface is smooth, compared to the surfaces of leafs and sepals, which are covered in hair-like structures called trichomes. Petals are usually a bright colour in order to attract pollinators to the flower. Gorse flowers have yellow petals. Magnification: x512 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
