Macro Monday - Hare's Tails

I’ve just come back from a week away – pictures to follow.
This is one of my favourite pictures from the past couple of years.  This type of grass is called Hare’s Tails.  It not a native grass, but I rather like it.
So, while I sort through the dozens of pictures I took last week, forgive a little bit of archive mining.

You can find more macro images at Macro Monday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the close ups.

  7. What an interesting plant! I can actually visualise the second photo as a very popular blown up canvas ... you know those decor ones they sell at the big furnishing stores. Seriously ... it would sell like hotcakes with the young set who want the beige & neutrals interior design look :-)

  8. Beautiful! - love the soft tones.

  9. Lovely type of grass ~ great shots ~ Hope you had a wonderful week away ~thanks, namaste, ^_^

  10. These are very pretty - I can just imagine them flowing in the breeze.

  11. That is a lovely grass!

  12. I've grown hare's tails grass in my garden in the past as an ornamental. It is a very pretty grass. You said it not not native, but does it grow wild where you live?

  13. Used to play with these when we were children. If you licked the hairs they would move about! Little things amuse kids to no end! Lovely shots!

  14. There's nothing like archive mining. It's amazing what treasures you find :)
