Pine flowers


I need a biologist to explain the life cycle of pine trees to me. I’ve tried to find out what these structures are by searching the internet but I’m still not confident I know. Pine trees apparently have both male and female cones, and the smaller male cones release pollen to fertilise the larger female cones. Are these the female or the male?


I took these photos a couple of days ago in the woodland above Hwasun beach but I could have taken them in lots of places on Jeju. I’m pleased with them.
