springbeauties-12
(Spring Beauty - 12) From the side view of the top right spring beauty flower, we can see that when newly opened the stamens are longer than the pistil; but as the flower matures, the stamens lie back against the petals, leaving the pistil standing high in the center, as can be seen in the side view of the left flower
