"Pollen Microscopy"


Curiosity and interest in what his bees were bringing back to the hive led to Norman's great interest in pollen. Over the course of about 25 years, he collected pollen, noted the source flower, viewed the pollen through a microscope, and put his technical drawing skills to good effect making drawings of the many and varied individual pollen grains.


He and Val compiled over 100 of these pollen drawings for this book.  Between Norman, Val and numerous enthusiastic friends, they scoured the countryside to produce the colour photos of the source flowers displayed alongside the pollen drawings.
