Horsemint Seed Head Remains from Above 1005

Horsemint, Monarda citriodora, flowers late in the spring and has faded by summer, but its remains can stay standing through fall and winter and on into the next spring. I didn’t wait that long to take this picture, which is from August 1st in northwest Austin.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that points 1, 7, 17, and 19 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph.
