Male and Female Squash Blossoms

The summer squash plants are starting to blossom, and this year, I’m paying a little more attention. As you may know, only female squash blossoms form squash, so male squash blossoms  can be harvested and used in cooking.

OK, so I’m not really confident in my squash knowledge yet, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that these are pretty much all male. (Except for the one that has already turned into a full-fledged squash.) Thoughts anyone?
