Entitled: Flowers and their visitors 4.

(1) This picture shows the beautiful bell-shaped flowers of the heath, and two meadow brown butterflies
flying round them in the search for nectar. The butterfly on the right is a female, and that on the left a male.

(2) Here one of the flowers is cut open and greatly enlarged so that we may see what goes on when the butterfly
pushes its tongue down to the nectar. It already has pollen on it from another flower, and this is dusted off on to
the ripe stigma, or female organ, fertilising the ovules, while the stamens, or male organs, are disturbed,
and the pollen pours out from little holes on to the butterfly’s head.

(3) On the left is one of the anthers on the end of the stamen, magnified, and we see the pollen pouring out.
In the centre is a section of the pistil with the fruits developing, and on the right we see the fruit of the heath,
consisting of a capsule with four cells.

(4) In this picture we see a flower cut open to show the capsule after it has been split,
dispersing the seeds to continue the race of heaths.
