    Well, it was true, this stalk was a death sentence for this agave in my dad's yard. I'm just now getting these pics up, they were taken last month.


    This shot is from the [thread=43290]Original Series from February[/thread].

    These are the new ones from June. They are a little smaller, and I didn't spend as much time on them in PS...

    Awwww, that's so sad! Poor agave.

    Interesting series, to see the slow progression. And that first shot, the b/w, is ah-MAZing...gorgeous tones and composition. Thanks for sharing.

    Aw, a pity to see the last, though I like the light you had to take that one very much. The golden dusk light goes so well with the wilted leaves of the fallen plant.

    So once in their lives and only that once they build out their flower, and I guess by that time the plant is fairly advanced in age already (?), and then they die, in the sure hope the bees (or whichever insects there are where you are to spread the pollen) will have seen to scattering about a good many prospective baby agaves?

    i'm not really sure how they propagate themselves, but this photo shows a close up of the stalk, which appears to be covered by hundreds of baby agaves... perhaps they would fall off and root themselves...?
