very curious flowers. What is it's name ?

@Marie LC: It's Bear Grass (Xerophyllum tenax) which looks like a grass but is actually closely related to lilies. It's found mainly in western North America. In Washington State, it's common on the Olympic Peninsula and in the Cascade Range.
Great capture of the Bear Plant - contrast of colours and depth of field works a treat.

I have never heard of bear grass. Do they call it that because it looks soft and cuddly, but it's really tough and dangerous? :)

@Amanda: It is tough and useful. According to Wikipedia, "This species was long used by Native Americans who wove it into baskets. Its fibrous leaves, which turn from green to white as they dry, are tough, durable, and easily dyed and manipulated into tight waterproof weaves." This probably accounts for one of its other common names, Indian basket grass.
So these were the first stars you saw.....;-) Usefull grass and a real eye ctacher:-)

@MARIANA: Spring comes very late up in the mountains. And then, it's winter. ;-)
Beautiful capture of detail in this bear grass which contrasts well with the colorful surroundings.

20 Sep 2010 11:43pm
The dof is super, giving the photo some feeling of room to walk
around the main subject. Very beautiful colors and capture.
