Photo Archive No. 148.1.2011.03

PS. 148. 15 March 2011. 10:30 AM. Facing south southwest, Azimuth 245. Pasture 3. Elevation 998 m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Mark II Digital Camera. Witness post present, camera above. Mesquite alive. Scattered Zinnia. Prickly pear, hedgehog, barrel, and cholla cacti. Most grass plants are Bouteloua aristidoides or Lehmann lovegrass. Some Rothrock grama and threeawns. Cottontop, bush muhly and Setaria under mesquite, and some in open. Snakeweed and blue palo verde on far side of channel. Compared to 2007, many new very small burroweed plants, more perennial grass plants but the appearance is less grass because recent grazing (last month) defoliated nearly all plants, a Boer’s lovegrass plant under center mesquite, and generally the old burroweed and snakeweed died in last 4 years..
