Horsetail by Allan J Jones Photography

I was walking along the beach and noticed this patch of horsetail catching the sun. I really liked the way you could follow the contour of the ground beneath. Most of these are the common horsetail, with a few giant horsetail mixed in. Like the dandelion, often regarded as a weed. But one of the older plants still thriving.
