Sarcobatus vermiculatus

Image of greasewood

Description:

You might think that this is a conifer of some sort, from the appearance of these cone-like structures, but you'd be wrong. Sarcobatus is actually a flowering plant, and these are staminate inflorescences. Seen on the margin of Mono Lake, Mono County, California.
