Black-eyed susan seed head remains

Black-Eyed Susan Seed Head Remains by Tasajillo 3859

Here a Cylindropuntia leptocaulis, known as tasajillo and Christmas cactus, served merely as a colorful background for the seed head remains of what I believe had been (and technically still was) a black-eyed susan, Rudbeckia hirta. How long was this dry seed head? I’d say about 2/3 of an inch (17 mm). How long was this seed head dry? I’d say since last summer.

Like some other recently shown photographs, today’s is from a March 13th visit to McKinney Falls State Park in southeast Austin.
