Finally, if you really want lots of micrographs, here are links to download zipped folders containing the raw EM images of WT pollen at these different stages.  Some images are better than others.
Early polarized microspore (zipped folder)
Late polarized microspore  (zipped folder)
Pollen Mitosis I (zipped folder)
Bicellular (zipped folder)

Also, here is a link to a zipped folder of toluidine-blue stained semi-thin sections through a WT anther at the early polarized microspore stage.
