2011/162: Antelope Horns
What? You didn’t expect flower pictures? 😉
Found his mystery flower at Denison Dam – and was almost eaten alive by those almost-humming-bird-sized Texas mosquitoes while taking pictures of it. It was worth it, though, don’t you agree? Thanks to a Texas wildflower website, and a little bit of luck, I was able to identify it quickly. They are also known as spider milkweed, green-flowered milkweed, and spider antelope-horns.
