Bushy bluestem once more

Bushy Bluestem Turned Fluffy by Pond 2189

Another thing I photographed at the edge of a pond in far northwest Austin on February 27th was this bushy bluestem, Andropogon glomeratus. You might assume the blue in the background is from water, but I was facing away from the pond and toward some shaded woods, so the blue would’ve come from dapples of light or bits of sky visible through the darker trees. Today’s backlit photograph is a more chiaroscuro look at this grass than any I’ve previously shown (or probably ever taken).
