The immature Bloodroot flower, located on the left, is portrayed with anthers not yet opened to reveal pollen. The taller mature flower, which occurs on a stem at about four to five inches tall, is drawn with anthers opened and full of pollen. Two small bees are depicted as line drawings seeking pollen. They are rendered devoid of color as though almost invisible and allude to the declining populations of bees.
