The many sides of Acourtia nana, continued

Acourtia nana, skeletonized
West Odessa, Texas

Yesterday I wrote about how the dwarf desert holly leaves will skeletonize. I thought you might like to see how beautiful they are when they do.

Oh, and those little circular marks on the leaves that I saw at Tahoka Lake? They are on leaves here too. I just never noticed before. Funny how in simply a new environment you see things fresh.

Now you will be seeing little circles everywhere. hehe. I love seeing the many faces of Acourtia nana. She is a simple but complex woman. haha.

They are beautiful. With their regular patterns look a little like the lead in stained glass windows in old churches.
