Thank you, Tiia, Kay, and Dianna! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me your comments! I seemed to have a "fixation" on wild grass this summer... ;-)

A deserving winner! I was so drawn to your treatment that accentuates this common grass. I love wild grasses, but I only have one decent shot because you must lay on the ground to get it, and around here, that means laying on cacti! Anyway, congratulations on this beauty.

Thank you, Aggie! Wild grasses often catch my eye, when I am out shooting other things, and in certain light conditions I feel compelled to try and capture what I "see." The location where I took this photo has all sorts of low-growing cacti....among the yucca, wild grasses and tiny wildflowers. The other day, I was out there shooting some wildflower macros, and had to pull quite a few cactus needles out of my hand, butt, and leg. ;-) Thanks again, Aggie!
