21. Pollen

Pollen is a typically yellow, powdery substance, made up of microscopic grains released from the male part of a flower or from a male cone, like the male pine cone. Each grain of pollen encloses a male gamete that can ferilize the female ovule. Pollen is transported by the wind, bees, insects or other animals.
