A Tall Tail

Cattails are always interesting to look at - so my wife says, and I agree. Getting close might mean you get your boots full of water.

I particularly like the background bokeh of this image - the wash of green textures in the background. If I were to try again I wouldn't want the blade of green that is in-front of the cattail, perhaps at the time I thought it added, but now I think it distracts. One the positive side, the two blades in the foreground do help to lead the eye through the image. I have flipped the image horizontally to better leverage those leading lines.
