 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog, the last one of October.  The end of the year is coming fast.  Today's flower is one I got the same day as last week's.  I am glad I got them because they both froze the next day.  This one is Buffalo Burr.  The name comes from it's tendency to grow around Bison wallows.  It is very drought resistant and very aggressive.  When the plant ages it breaks off at the stem and rolls like a tumbleweed scattering seeds as it goes.  It blooms from May through September typically but I found this in October last week.  This is a 4 image focus stack to get the flower and the burrs.


  1. That one I know we don't have around here. Sounds quite prolific

    1. They are in certain areas and quite painful if you miss seeing them.
