Protea paparazzi have no respect for plant privacy. No notion exists of possible sensibilities that a Protea scolymocephala flowerhead might harbour regarding its private parts or reproductive equipment.
Similar to forensic photography used on the corpses of murder victims, there is no limit, no deterrent from recording the most intimate details accompanied by bold discussion for ensuring full disclosure, pursuing all items of interest.
This is not very different from what medical science does about patient anatomy, but that happens in closed circles among professionals with appropriate care to objective scientific context and propriety.
Ironic, the only bashful species that has developed social conventions regarding privacy of selected body parts, is out-breeding its fellow beings of other species on earth at a rate that threatens biodiversity (Eliovson, 1983; Rourke, 1980; http://pza.sanbi.org).
