Tumble Weeds

You find this plant along the beach. The seeds are in the center of these spoke-like needles. When they turn brown, they break away from the main plant and roll across the beach and start life anew. They almost perform a dance as the wind moves them first one way and then another. This plant was photographed east of Dili at a place nicknamed "dollar beach." Locals, apparently, used to charge a buck to expats who wanted to use this beach. Today, it's free.
