Complementary


Last July I showed a few pictures of Coast Onion (Allium dichlamydeum) from Dillon Beach, but here are a couple of recent images taken on Bodega Head on 21 June 2013. 

It appears to be a very good year for this species, so it's a great time to look for the brightly-colored flowers emerging among the lichen-covered rocks (beware of the Poison Oak!).  Note that the onion's leaves have mostly dried and disappeared by this time.


There's something quite complementary about the magenta of the onion and the grays of the lichens.
