Salsify ~ Oysterplant ~ A Plant By Many Names

Western Goat's Beard... Wild Oysterplant... Yellow Salsify... Yellow Goat's Beard... Meadow Goat's Beard... Goat's Beard... Goatsbeard... Common Salsify... or Salsify...

Whatever you want to call them, they make great photography subjects... in my opinion anyway.

I was able to photograph some while I was on a walk with my dad and Matouk when I was back home in Ohio.

The ones I photographed had a yellow flower...

And, like many of the others, this one had gone to seed.
I thought the sun was hitting this one nicely, making it shimmer.

These plants are, in my opinion,
a macro-obsessed photographer's dream.

Not that I'd know any macro-obsessed photographer or anything. ;-)

Today, I won't be taking any photos, unless I take them inside. Today, I'm just listening to the rain continuously hit the metal roof and the steel buildings. It's a rainy day... good day for just being lazy. ;-)

What a cool looking flower! We definitely don't have them around here.

Boy, am I ever glad I came here before I posted my collection of oysterplant photos! I had them named wrong!!!
I totally agree about how fascinating they are, although I would rank chicory and milkweed higher, if I knew any macro obsessed photographers....

Roni

lol I don't know any macro obsessed photographers either. What a beautiful subject. I don't know that I've seen them. Perhaps I need to look closer. Your shots are beautiful, Misty...
