Gourds like this grow all over.
An example of what was called prairie crab.
Tiny cactus like this are hard to see. These days am looking down more than ahead for several reasons. Snakes is one of them.
The pictures from the side were not that good.
This is not your general run of the mill hopper you see out here and there are many. This may be a prairie shrimp and there is a problem..
Why he's missing a leg.
And this ain't it .
Then there's the thistles.
For a thistle flower picture this stuck out.
A different type of thistle. This almost doesn't look real to me. It did look like you see it and stood out from the others. There doesn't seem to be much color out here but if you look a bit there is.
Walking stick cactus are blooming. Some of these can get like a small tree. There are not so many here and have to go somewhere where they are plentiful. Trying to remember where.
Soon this will have flowers too.
