Biological surfaces are rarely smooth. High-magnification often reveals complex three-dimensional structures down to the nanometer range. Over millions of years flowering plants, such as daisies (Bellis perennis), have evolved complex multifunctional microstructures optimized to repel dirt, or to function as a convenient landing pads for insects. Here you can see the surface of a fresh sepal from a Daisy floret that was collected from the border of the inflorescence.
