What do flower pollens look like?
  Flower pollens come in various shapes and sizes. There are spherical, oval, angular and pyramid-shaped pollen bodies. To differentiate of the variform forms and colours, the pollens are magnified using a microscope. The single pollen grain is so tiny and yet the total number is so tremendously large. For example, a dandelion blossom has got up to 240,000, hazelcatkin 4 million and a corn plant even over 50 million flower pollens.
