While exploring The Steel Stacks, before taking the photo of the bird, I found this patch of something that looks like wheat. I thought it was kind of weird to have wheat just randomly placed, so to Google I went! Well, I asked my mom first and then she went to Bing, which was the first step in finding out what this plant is. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love wildlife photography and macro photography, but when I take photos of plants and animals, I don’t always know what they are. I’m really starting to think I need a book of plants and animals. Anyway! After some further research, it appears that this plant is wheat and tares. What’s the difference between wheat and wheat and tares? I have no idea, but it’s pretty none-the-less!
