Blazing Star Visitor

Blazing Star Visited, a photo by mostendorf1 on Flickr.

I actually took this photo back in July, and the Blazing Star (probably Liatris pycnostrachya) has pretty much gone to seed at this point. Nonetheless, I just wanted to share this with you.This field of Blazing Star inhabited really rocky soils, leftovers from a lead/zinc mining industry that has left messes all over Southwest Missouri, SE Kansas, and NE Oklahoma (Familiar with Picher?).
