A flower making the best use of Bison fertilizer

It often amazes me that plants can find a way to grow just about anywhere. Sometimes in the smallest cracks in solid rock walls, sometimes out of other dead plants, and sometimes is very harsh conditions that you would not think would support life. In this case, a flower found a way to take advantage of fertilizer left for it by a Bison. Not appetizing to us humans, but seemingly an ideal environment for a plant.
