Cattails are common along the lakes, creeks, and other waterways here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA.  When they go to seed, they remind me of a buffalo shedding its thick, woolly mane in the spring.  Have you ever seen a buffalo in that state?  Do you know what I mean?

Here are three of my favorite shots of cattails during a recent walk along the Streamway Park trails.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?

  6. I like #2 as well, it does look like a face.. and yes, I have seen buffalo shedding.

  7. I love cattails!! HAHA! I think the last one might be my favorite! I love those close up shots 🙂 You did a great job!

  8. That middle one looks like a face! I like the last one the best.

    • How funny that you and several other site visitors saw a face! I didn’t see it at all until everyone mentioned it, and now that’s ALL I see. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your encouragement!

  9. The first one is my favorite but I saw the face on the second one right away. It looks sort of like the forest people from Lord of the Rings.


I love hearing from you!
