Tetraneuris linearifolia Flower Head Opening 9112

Another wildflower I photographed when I walked in the greenbelt north of Old Lampasas Trail in northwest Austin on March 15th was Tetraneuris linearifolia, or four-nerve daisy, the species that prompted the discussion two years ago about crenels and merlons. While that still applies, this latest view offers a composition different from any I recall ever using for a four-nerve daisy, with the arc of the drooping flower stalk perpendicular to the plane of the camera’s sensor rather than parallel to it (which I did use for some of the other pictures in the session). Gotta keep trying new things, right?
