Sensitive Briar

Another wildflower growing in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma is the Sensitive Briar (Schrankia uncinata). This unique flower is a creeping or trailing plant of dry areas, entirely covered by hooked barbs. Here are a few of my favorite images, showing both the plant structure and a closeup of the flower:
