Cattail seeds scattering

with 8 comments

Several feet away from the chaos of the last picture, taken at Riata Trace Pond on February 15, was this contrasting and much simpler scene, where some cattail seeds had fallen or been blown onto the rough surface of one of the plant’s long leaves. I assume the seeds eventually came loose and made their way into the water or onto the nearby shore.

Cattail seeds coming loose

with 20 comments

Yes, cattail seeds coming loose at Riata Trace Pond in northwest Austin on February 15. Don’t you love the chaos? A slightly earlier phase in the process appeared, and from a greater distance, in the post of December 29. Both times I wore hip-high rubber boots so I could wade into the water where the cattails were growing.
