February Photography

I wondered around and took a few photographs today.  Early February is not good for the type of photos I like to take–it is too early for flowers, there is no new snow (not that I am complaining about that), and it is a little too windy for what I like to do.

I did get a photo of this compass plant.  Compass plant is a tallgrass prairie flower, so called because the leaves have a tendency to arrange themselves in a north-south orientation.


I also found this bright green moss on the ground.  Mosses are seasonal, just like wildflowers.  The capsules will be developing over the next few weeks on this one.
