I stumbled on this rather recherché website and thought some of you might enjoy the amazing photos. Lots of detailled discussion of plant anatomy and sex life too. The site is for hugely passionate microscopy devotees - run since 1995, which is about as soon as websites were a thing. The below are photographed and written by Brian Johnston.

    Thank you for those beautiful photos, Fire.

    When I saw the name of the photographer I was a bit surprised. Didn’t know he was a man of such a wealth of talents. One memory of him will never die.😂
