Brazilian wildflower (Gomphrena)

.....Driving through the tall grasslands of Serra da Canastra, our mission this time was to find giant anteaters. They are particularly hard to spot amid the tall, yellow-gray grasses. I did find this bright spot of scarlet by the side of the road one day and decided to do a quick study. I was glad I did, as we never saw another one.
