Pollen

 

A pollen grain is a mass of microspores in a seed plant appearing usually as a fine dust. Each pollen grain is a minute body, of varying shape and structure, formed in the anther, in seed-bearing plants and transported by various means (wind, water, insects, etc.) to the pistil, where fertilization occurs. In the image below there are a couple of flowers that contain yellow-colored pollen on top of their anthers, which are used by flowers to reproduce.Image
