Still the same flower, but should the fly venture into another VSB flower, some of that pollen may contact the stigma…but will it?

    Hi Matthew, I enjoy your post every day! I was wondering if you have high resolution versions of your pictures? I would love to use this picture for a presentation: [image: image.png] If yes, that would be great. I will credit you of course. Either way: Keep those posts coming! Thank you, Filippine
