Paspalum distichum

Paspalum distichum is a species of grass known by the common name knotgrass. Other common names include couch paspalum, eternity grass, gingergrass, and Thompson grass. Its native range is obscure because it has long been present on most continents, and in most areas it is certainly an introduced species. Its native range probably includes parts of the tropical Americas.
This is a perennial grass forming clumps and spreading via rhizomes and stolons. It grows decumbent or erect to a maximum height near 60 centimeters. The inflorescence is usually divided into two braches lined with spikelets.

Hello Ferran,
excellent V shape. The details are excellent and lovely colour contrast.
The grass is very small indeed and I think Im quite familiar with this common specie.
A nicely captured in lively composition done in nice precision.
