A macro view of the nectar oozing out of some lilies that I brought home the other day. If I was a bee I’d be pretty excited about it. 🙂
Sooo, in the process of googling what that part of the lily is, I found waaaay too much information. But I’ll summarize by saying that I believe the central prong-like thing sticking out is the pistil, and the end of it is its lady-part, called the stigma, and the nectar it is oozing is there to catch bits of pollen from the worker bees as they fly in and out. There you go – botany lesson of the day.
