This ubiquitous wildflower is known as Redstem Filaree on this site, and Filaree or Common Stork’s Bill in my Pojar's book. However, I knew it as a kid as Scissors because you can create a scissors-shaped object by linking two of the seedpods together.
Erodium cicutarium, also known as redstem filaree, common stork's-bill or pinweed, is a herbaceous annual – or in warm climates, biennial – member of the family Geraniaceae of flowering plants. It is native to the Mediterranean Basin and was introduced to North America in the eighteenth century, where it has since become invasive, particularly of the deserts and arid grasslands of the southwestern United States.
