The second photo and the last photo will be Eryngo (Eryngium leavenworthii) I think.

I think the third plant might be a type of Button Bush. Was it a shrubby type plant, rather large, growing on the edge of a water way of some sort. I think it might be Cephalanthus occidentalis with mature blooms. I'm not sure though. I like your photo a lot because I have this plant growing on the river banks and it looks like this in the fall. All the Google images show fresher blooms earlier in the season and I don't notice the plant so much then. Maybe because the river bed has water and I'm not down it walking around.

I hope someone else can verify what this plant is. I should go take a photo of what's growing here to compare.

I agree with needrain and hamiltonsquare, the plant in third photo appears to be Eryngo (Eryngium leavenworthii)

I've just been reading along, enjoying the pics and the IDs. But I have a question.
Was the a "hunting" hunting trip in the normal sense as for food? or a hunting trip to photograph unusual plants?
Either way, this was fun. Hurray! Thumbs up

The hunting trip was for food deer to be exact ha ha, me and some friends were bow hunting, and i like to know my surroundings and local plant life you never know if they may come in handy knowing what is attracted to them or if they help in any type situation! For instance the Button bush attracts birds like waterfowl they have a season as well, and Cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium) helps out with poisoness bites and some other things. Cant wait to see what other things we uncover!

Thanks for the info. Good stuff!
(Since this is a plant site and not a hunting site I won't ask specific questions about the hunt itself.)

Cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium) helps with poisonous bites?!! Can you provide a link to that information? Smiling Other than referring to the seeds as porcupine eggs, I've never heard anything remotely positive about it. I'm only 4-5 counties east of Robert Lee, so a lot of the vegetation there will be familiar to me though I probably can't i.d. most of it.

I am not a doctor and this is not a medical site but here is a good link to show the many uses of the plant.
http://www.naturalmedicinalherbs.net/herbs/x/xanthium-struma...

Another link that said the roots were chewed as an antidote for Rattlesnake bites. Many are 'old time' uses and many were used by the Native American populations. It is not advisable to use any plant as medicine without proper training. Please use caution.
