Stipa barbata last night before sundown, appearing bioluminescent in the dwindling light, whipsawing back and forth in the late afternoon breeze like some flagelliform creature in an aquarium.
Still photos really can’t do it justice. I need to work on my video skills. In the calm of this morning, the grass was limp, docile, almost ordinary.
These two clumps have a lot of growing left to do. This grass is famously slow to bulk up and stingy with its seed too.
But in a breeze, they are as mesmerizing as — I don’t know, the last time I watched the jellyfish at the Long Beach Aquarium.
That kind of mesmerizing.
