narrow pipewort, Eriocaulon lineare

Pow! The firework just went off. And the camera caught it just as the pieces lit up at the end of their trajectories. Or its just a pipewort. Pipeworts don't seem to have much purpose from a human point of view other than giving us moments of amusement. They spend their time populating bogs and other wet spots, mostly in the tropics. They've found their niche, and that's that. Narrow pipewort reaches as far north as AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, and NC. Polk Co FL, 3/18/16. Pipewort family, Eriocaulaceae.
