Soft grass and different 'grass'

The soft grass grows in a flood zone off the Missouri River in NE Kansas.....it's incredible soft at the point I took this photo...
The two 'seeding' images I've no idea? But was growing among native Tall Grass.

Re: Soft grass and different 'grass'

The grass looks like a Hordeum. The other resembles Ambrosia trifida.

Possibly Hordeum jubateum?
The ID for the other is the one...never knew RagWeed had such an interesting seed to it...
Thanx for the help!
