Thanks to both of you, glad you like the photo.

Here's a photo of a species of plant in the Antennaria genus.
July 2010 Photo of the Month Contest - Post Entries Here-antennaria-neglecta-dsc_5808-01.jpg



That genus got its name because the person who named it thought that it looked like it had insect antennae on it. This one is (I think) Antennaria neglecta, photographed in the Bartel Grassland, and is NOT an entry in the photo contest, just posting it to show another flower that has insect-like parts.

I've always liked Antennaria. I first learned about it in my dad's rock garden.

Cool to know that others have a similar imagination. I never made the connection with the genus name--it seems so clear now! (And this after 3 years of Latin in high school!)

Thanks for sharing that and the info...
I think it resembles a wedding bouquet...
Is that some sort of pussy toes?

I thought so... It has the same grayish fuzzy look of the pussy toes.

The field pussytoes are a very cute plant. Thanks for the link. I am adding it to my list of plants for my garden - likes dry, rocky, clay soil. Sounds like my yard, for sure!

That is an amazing bug! I've never seen anything like it. I bet your grandson will remember finding it.
