Hairball!

A tumbleweed (Russian thistle) lies lodged in Upper Antelope Canyon, in Antelope Canyon Navajo Tribal Park outside of Page, Arizona.

 

For more photos from my explorations (and some technique tips) check out my blog.

 

Thanks to Hollywood movies, many consider the tumbleweed to be an iconic symbol of the American West, but it's an exotic invader that was first identified in Australia in 1810 and was not introduced to the USA until it arrived with Russian immigrants in South Dakota around 1877.

 

I just found out about Flickr's Explore... this shot was featured there (Highest position: 36 on Wednesday, January 9, 2008). You can find if your photos have been there via a search on Scout, such as this:
