Tsuh Yang,

I guess I could say that I cleaned the flower before taking pic #14, but
that wouldn't
be truthful. Pic #13 and Pic#14 are pictures of 2 different
flowers.....with pic #13 taken
after pollen had dropped and with pic #14 being taken before pollen had

As for those tentacles, I would think it keeps insects from escaping, but
I'll leave
the correct and botanical explanation to those that know it.
