    This is backlit Little Bluestem grass, including a seed head. Little Bluestem is having a hard time with the severe drought we have had for several years. I don't believe this seedhead completely formed. Nice rich, if somewhat muted colors though.

    That's an interesting picture you got there. I like the way you used the stem on the right to balance out your composition. Although I think the picture might look even more interesting as a macro. That Bluestem grass has a lot of furry whiteness which might make a good macro.

    The focus didn't really support much more cropping either. The biggest problem is the non stop prairie winds. I took 20 pictures of this grass waving in the wind to get one that was fairly well focused. Fortunately digital and the fast speed of the Sony make this an easy minute and a half work.
