Getting into the spirit of things

Here's an image that really gets all the stuff that can make grass flowers fun. Those dangly anthers, the feathery pistils, and long-awned spikes are all here. I guess I get kind of fanciful when I think of shots like this as capturing the spirit of the subject. So prepare to be subjected to some of those flights of fancy over the next few days. I know that what may be a spirit in the moment to one person is anything but to others. Maybe that will be part of the fun too. And maybe there will be some converts? This Indian grass shot is from Ives Preserve, which for me adds yet another layer of feeling, like getting into the spirit of that place. Aha! Another idea for a future series!
