The spurge approach to pollination is interesting.  All of them have little inconspicuous flowers, with larger, usually colored bracts to attract bugs.  Not your usual flowers.  Some of them, like flowering spurge, poinsettia, and fire or snow-on-the-mountain are very beautiful.  Maybe we're the ones with too much hubris, dissecting and naming all these parts of nature's beauty.

The view counter for this site just clicked over 50,000.  Not very many for the web world.  But fun to have happen for my birthday.  Still here pushing daisies rather than pushing them up.
