Corn flower

Early morning corn flower.

I love the miracle of corn. Each of these beautiful red hairs is the female pollen receptacle. The male flowers are at the top of the corn plant and the heavy pollen blows down to this female flower. Once each 'hair' catches a pollen grain it will then fertilize one kernel of corn.

Part of the beautiful dance that is corn.

This is my Popcorn that I have had for over 12 years.
