Pollen Corona produced by hop blooms

Here in Germany we see pollen coronae produced primarily by birch, spruce, pine, hazel and alder. However, by deliberately shaking the bushes to discharge clouds of pollen it is possible to generate other types of coronae. In this example Karl Kaiser photographed a coronae from male hop blooms. Other pollen coronae by Karl are here.

Nice pollen corona page that Karl has. The spruce pollen cloud is awesome.
