Least that is what showed up in Google when I put middle stuff in a flower name. The Stamen is comprised of the anther and the filament. Since everything on the internet is factually correct it cannot be disputed. So these are clearly stamen of weeds that I have shot.
To be honest, the more I work on these photos the more I see where I need to work on this. Holding a flash in one hand and a camera in the other makes life difficult when trying to hold a camera steady. Using a tripod would help but I can’t see some of these places let me setup a tripod and then tell the artless heathens that I am an artist and they are ruining my shot. So I guess I need to practice.
Until then, enjoy the stamen!
