Photography by Josh Hillman

Species: Passiflora incarnata (purple passionflower, maypop)
Rhoden Cove, Lake Jackson
Tallahassee, FL     May 14, 2005

This is the same purple passion flower as in the previous photo. Notice the three pistils/styles have drooped during the 53 minutes that passed since the previous photo was taken. Shortly before the previous photo was taken, the three pistils were nearly vertical and the bulbous stigmata at the ends of the styles were nearly touching each other.
