The woody remains of an Ocotillo shoots towards to sky. The thorny multi-stem Shrub is really a woody deciduous plant. Unlike others in its family, that grow leaves in the spring and drop them in the fall. This plant can grow and lose leaves five times a year depending on water. This stand is in #JoshuaTree, just s small part of the water problems in California. @robertclarkphoto @thephotosociety @instituteartist @natgeo
