Peacock of the week, power storm.
This week, a species formerly or still (pending your acceptance of systematics nerdery) ascribed to Epilobium (oldy or misleady) or more accurately (accurently!) Chamerion: Chamerion angustifolium. Or so to speak, Fireweed (USA and most Canada), Great Willow-herb (parts of Canada), or Rosebay Willowherb (UK), and as litterally translated from French Epilobium with narrow leaves. Should have been appearing in an old BloggerBioBlitz (2008 edition).

Culture isn’t that weird, or is it?
A great deal of a flowering plant life is left to the discretion of pollinators. These indeed do play a very fundamental role in plant mating. Not to say, they are often responsible for a sensible amount of selfing (self-fertilization) and outcrossing (mating with an unrelated plant of the same species), depending on their behavior once they are landing on a flower.
