Broomweed Flower Head 2564

The flower heads of broomweed, Amphiachyris dracunculoides, are small, only about half an inch across, but they can appear in large numbers on a single plant. On August 13th, when I took this picture in northwest Austin, few flower heads had yet appeared, so I got close and did a solo portrait.

I’m out of town for a while. Of course you’re welcome to leave comments, but please understand if it takes me longer than usual to respond.
