Desert Ecosystems.

Life in the desert is a delicate balance, teetering on the edge of blah blah blah. Here are some pictures of plants I saw on a recent desert trip.

It rained about a week earlier, so most of these plants had taken advantage of the unseasonable hydration and tried to grow.

Some where more successful than others.

I especially liked how these little ones sprouted seeds (kinda hard to see, but they're there), and then grew these intertwined wooden limbs around the seeded center to protect them.
