Agave After the Bloom

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 August 2014 in Plant & Nature.

This plant bloomed this year and died. All it's energy goes into the flower stalk, blossoms, and seeds. On this hike, I saw a plant with a green flower stalk even though the leaves were already withering.

Since I was pretty close to this plant, I shot a two frame vertical panorama.

Emouvant petit arbre qui s'élève vers le ciel avec toute l'énergie du désespoir...J'aime beaucoup les deux nuages dans les deux angles. Bon weekend Steve et très amicalement :)
