Photo Blog #9 (Flower Ovary)

FullSizeRender (4)

This is a picture of a dandelion, for a flower to reproduce it needs an insect to carry the pollen from the male part to the female part. The ovary of flower is located inside of the receptacle (the big green area below the yellow and above the stem) The reason that dandelions are so hard to control is that they can reproduce with just one flower because they contain both male and female parts!
