This week a break from Mexico photographs. I was out birding on New Years Eve trying to pad my year list. What first struck me was the height of these seed heads, which towered over my head (1.9 m), leaving me initially puzzled as to their identity. Great light from the low winter sun also helps to elevate this shot.
