Tiny flower - Passiflora suberosa

I walked by the ever presence Passiflora suberosa - almost a daily ritual i will look at them even noticing a pair of the fruit turning from deep green to dark purple over the months, clinging closely to the great supporting 'senior' rain tree. This morning I didnt have time to choose a good looking flower so I reached out and 'yanked' out one which looked kind of dry. Surprisingly with CP995 .. the pollen sacs and pollen grains are clearly visible - more lively than i thought. After the brief photo shoot - i had forgotten about this tiny passion flower and only realized it when i started typing away - my little finger unknowing crushing the fragile petals... oops
