Cattail Seedhead, another View


Congratulations Photowannabe Sue
Once again you are the one with the correct answer!

As I was wandering about the Meadow Grounds Lake Saturday morning I found a cattail (bulrush) seed stalk which had broken over. Taking the seed head in my hand I began rolling it and was amazed at the soft furry texture of the seeds and their filament wings.

Terrific shot and thanks for the fun mystery shot. I probably wouldn't have guessed correctly if I hadn't just posted my cattail picture.
