A twist on twistleaf yucca

Twistleaf Yucca Leaf with Blemish 1038

Here’s an abstract and minimalist closeup of twistleaf yucca, Yucca rupicola. In a photograph posted two years ago today I played up the characteristic way the leaves of this species twist, but what caught my attention here was the blemish on a non-twisted part of a yellowing leaf. This latest take is from the right-of-way beneath the large power lines near Yaupon Dr. in northwest Austin on February 14th.
