Otherwise known as the chrysothamnus nauseosus, this photo was taken on our ride into Canyonlands National Park, Needles District. I was drawn to the dried winter versions of plants in the desert, trying time and time again to get a photo that showed what I felt was beauty, dried, but beauty.
I decided I liked this photo, that it had promise, loaded it into the photo editor, started cropping, re-sizing, a little contrast and brightness, when I discovered a little surprise, a critter in the top right of the photo. Gotta say, it is a VERY good thing I did not see it while I was taking the photo, as I am NO fan of bugs, especially those that look like they might jump or fly at me in a heartbeat, they tend to make my heart beat stop!
