One consequence of cattails coming undone

Cattail Fluff Covering Dry Plant 4240

In the previous post you saw the way a cattail, Typha latifolia, was coming undone. Nearby I noticed a dried-out plant that had had a scaffolding of cattail seeds and fluff erected around it by the wind. The site of this sight was a sump on Samsung Blvd. in northeast Austin on August 12. If you double that 12, and if you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that point 24 in About My Techniques is relevant to this photograph.
