[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote Sand Dunes tend to have a list of plant species all their own, much different from the surrounding landscape. In North central Nevada we see quite an exquisite example of this in the narrow endemic plant species, #Psorothamnus kingii, known only from this region. We discuss the difference between #Paleoendemics and #Neoendemics, while cursing loudly to ourselves about the massive ecological benefit provided by such plants as #Grindelia squarrosa and #Chrysothamnus viscidiflorus, members of the sunflower family that bloom late in the summer when everything else is tapering off. These plants act as a pollinator buffet and support the food chain when little else is available in the form of nectar or pollen.

    I often think you need one of Mike Stinnet's "sticks" for your walk-abouts. One that has a little hole designed into it so that you could somehow attach whatever you're filming with and poke it into the ground like a tripod. Then you could be in some of the shots too and you've got something to lean on when scaling rough terrain (okay, in 20 years you'll know what I mean). Besides which, he's got much the same eye for tiny details and shares your appreciation of little things in nature I think. And they're very special sticks and you're very special!
