feather grass

We have this gigantic ornamental grass (Stipa gigantea, if you want to know)in the front yard that has just burst into bloom. Rain has bowed the stems down so we walk through the little dangling flowers going to and from the front steps, and I was determined that the first time the sun came out I was going to get a close-up photo of one of them. I particularly love the white “feathers” coming out of the base – the whole thing looks more like a fishing lure than a plant. I love my macro lens.
