There's a small clump of cattails (Typha sp.) in the middle of Paulik Park. I find cattails interesting, and feel a need to photograph them, apparently--although I find them difficult to photograph well. Among other issues, it's hard to decide: portrait or landscape? Clicking back through my files I find I have photographed the clump over the year, roughly at the solstices and equinoxes.
