What IS that?

Plants are amazing things - especially when you pay attention to the details. Often, I don't see those details until I take a close-up picture and look at it on my computer screen. So let's have some fun - I will put interesting bits of close-up photos on this page, and let you guess which plants are being highlighted. Just use the comment field below to state your guess. When a correct answer is posted for an image, I'll replace it with a new one. No prizes - just the glory of being a What's that? winner on robsplants.com.

Your guess may not appear in the comments section right away. I moderate page comments, to avoid an onslaught of spam.

The photos below are still in search of an identity:

WhatsThat number thirty-four: back-lit lung tissue?

WhatsThat number thirty-five: intricate flowers amid swords
