I hope these are interesting to someone. This is a meadow full of Datura wrightii. I have never seen so many in one place or so large.

Here, on ranches they're called Loco Weed because they make cattle sick.

Out here, astragalus is called locoweed. They say livestock gets addicted to it and doesn't want to eat anything else.

In this picture, the dead stuff in the foreground is poison hemlock, so you really could name your poison.
