Flameleaf Sumac Turning Colors by Backlit Silver Bluestem 0822

Central Texas rarely gets snow, and there hasn’t been any this year, but you can pretend that that’s what these backlit seed heads of silver bluestem (Bothriochloa laguroides ssp. torreyana) were. I photographed them surrounding a small prairie flameleaf sumac (Rhus lanceolata) that was turning colors on November 19th along RR 1869 west of the town of Liberty Hill.
