A closer look at one of the small yellow flower heads

Again from September 28 in Pflugerville, here’s a closer look at one of the small broomweed (Amphiachyris dracunculoides) flower heads you saw scattered across the prairie in yesterday’s post. Note the budding flower head at the lower left.

The indistinct purple column in the background is Liatris mucronata, called blazing-star and gayfeather.
