The spots are not in the pollen but right at the end of the anthers, and need a very good eye, or magnifying glass to see them clearly.

    James:
    Yes, that is just what I saw in some of my blooms.  I’ll go back and search through some of the myriad photos I’ve taken to see if I can find the evidence.  Are you saying that it is the end of the filament that is black, and that it is not covered with pollen?  You’re educating me here.
    thanks,
    Melissa
    p.s. I did reply off net to B.J.M.Zonnenveld that it is early season now for most in the US, and that it is just California that is coming to a close.
