In outback Australia, especially in the dry parts, there is still a lot of grass.
A special grass called “Spinifex” named after its needle like spines. The green base is a pincushion while the golden seed stalks and heads dominate the view.
Its seeds provide carbohydrates for the indigenous population and a themosetting wax from those seed heads also provide a glue for joining spearheads to wooden shafts.
Large monitor lizards dig their hole underneath the spinifex circles for protection from predators but the locals have worked out that a little bit of fire applied to this very flammable grass will expose the holes and allow the holes to be raided for four-legged protein.
Do you have a special GRASS image?
Post it and share it with us.
Next week, the subject will be “FACTORY”.
