November 24

These tall grasses are growing next to the parking lot where I work. (I think they're a variety of Pampas Grass, but I'm not sure... ) They were beautiful all summer, but somehow, I like them even better now!

Update: Thanks to Bonnie, I now know this is "Phragmites."
Very nice texture photo!

I love this...the depth is fantastic...and catching the different textures in such a great composition is very artistic...

Very cool. I love the fluffy seed heads on them.

great shot of these grasses! I love the way they bend in the breeze :o)

Good shot, there's some very intersting stuff on the grounds

I'll bet they make a lovely sound in the wind.

makes me think of the tall grass prairie.

The colour of their seed heads is awesome.

I think this might be "phragmites" grass. It is lovely and I enjoy looking at it and taking pictures of it . I took lots of phragmites grass pictures during Frances & My recent outing to Taylor's Island. It actually grows "too well". My husband writes grants to obtain thousands of dollars to kill this grass that is growing too well in the local wetlands. It is invasive and smothers out other grasses. Phragmites looks pretty but has no value to wildlife -- the other grasses that it smothers out have tremendous wildlife value.

@junebug - thanks for the info, Bonnie! I'm glad these are kind of contained where they are, so they won't take over other areas!

gosh beautoful colours and textures and I bet they make beautiful music when they move too....I love the sound of dry grasses in the wind.
