Four-Nerve Daisy Flower Head Opening on Broken Stalk 7938

Something had crimped the stalk of this four-nerve daisy but it kept growing, gradually curving back upward and even managing to produce the flower head you see here. The only thing different about it from a usual flower head of Tetraneuris linearifolia was that it was a bit flattened instead of circular. I found this testament to survival in the greenbelt north of Old Lampasas Trail on March 15th.

If you’re interested in the craft of photography, you’ll find that points 1, 2, 4 and 18 in About My Techniques apply to this image.
