Dense Cattail Colony Turning Fluffy 0461

Click for greater clarity and size.

In the last post you saw a goldenrod colony that was being coated with fluff blown off an adjacent colony of cattails, Typha domingensis. This is that other colony, and you can see bits of cattail fluff floating through the air across the top of the photograph.

I took this picture along Wells Branch Parkway near Drusilla’s Drive in Pflugerville on January 20th.
