Old Big Bad Banksia Men

Hey you! Who you talking to?
We showed you the first three stages of the life of a banksia flower previously, today we can show you the last stage.

The furry bits start to fall off, it loses all of the pretty colours and the seed pods open up releasing their seeds to propogate new banksia trees.

The open pods look like mouths which is why May Gibbs visualised them as Big Bad Banksia Men.
