Leaves Curling In Mimosa Pudica
Mimosa Pudica, sometimes called "sensitive plant" is something Helen remembers from Hong Kong as a kids. You can buy it in the flower market. Turns out it an invasive plant from the Americas. Oh well.
Species: Mimosa pudica (sensitive plant)

Wild Carrot Undershot
Yes, it is cliché, but sometimes a cliché is better than no shot at all. I wound up lying on a bunch of blackberry so getting up wasn't too comfortable.
Species: Daucus carota (wild carrot, Queen Anne's lace, bird's nest)

There was a large patch of this native plant. It made me smile. I wish I used more DOF and a tripod.

Bright Golden Aster In Dry Grass
I like how you get a splash of colour in a dry and drab background of dead grass. The park labeled this as "Chrysopsis villosa", but apparently that name is now out of date - it's "Heterotheca villosa var. villosa"
Species: Heterotheca villosa (hairy false goldenaster, hairy goldenaster)

Antelope Brush
This plant and it's crazy deep roots (much deeper than the plant is tall) is the cornerstone of this ecology.
Species: Purshia tridentata (antelope bitterbrush)
