Inner Beauty III: Golden Beauty, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

A friend of mine is growing some gorgeous oriental lilies along her front fence... so how could I resist snapping a few photos for reference...
This particular stargazer lily was bursting with thick, golden orange pollen, delicately balanced on wispy stamens, it looked beautiful and almost comical at the same time.  I was captivated by the fat fluffy mounds of gold, but was wondering how the skinny stems of the stamens could hold up such a load?

Golden fairy dust must not weigh very much...
