As stated in Wikipedia:

An inflorescence is a group or cluster of flowers arranged on a stem that is composed of a main branch or a complicated arrangement of branches. Strictly, it is the part of the shoot of seed plants where flowers are formed and which is accordingly modified.

I always find it fascinating when I rediscover some old photos that I’ve never processed. Today I was searching through some photos from my 2005 rafting trip in Utah to find one specific photo…only to discover a whole bunch of photos that I’ve never really looked at after I had taken them. It makes me giddy when that happens. It’s like finding five bucks in the pocket of a pair of jeans that you haven’t worn in a while.

Sorry, I do not know what species of flower this is because I apparently did not document the whole plant nor key it out when I took the photo. Way to go, andipantz. All I can guess is that it’s something in the sunflower family. These were taken in mid-daylight in Canyonlands National Park, Utah.

I figured that it was time to step away from the urban decay for a while and provide you with something a little bit more “fresh”, so to speak.
