Stork Bill Filaree

Commonly called Stork Bill or Heron Bill because of the seed pod. This is a tiny flower, easily overlooked. You can see some of the long seed pods developing.

This is probably often considered a weed rather than a wildflower. 

When the pods dry up they curl up like a corkscrew, wind and rain help drive the seed into the ground.

One more shot of the flowers.
