I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

There is plenty of cattails in my area. I see them growing everywhere. While trying to identify this particular type of cattail, I came across two that it are possibilities. I am leaning more toward the Southern Cattail. The flower parts look more similar to me. The thing that makes me question that it this is not Southern Cattail is the location. The other possibility is the Broadleaf Cattail. Although as I sit here preparing this post and reread the descriptions, I am thinking maybe it is the Narrowleaf Cattail. However, they only mention this plant and do not have a specific page for this type of Cattail. So what is your opinion? I appreciate any help in identifying anything that I might have on my blog. Thanks for reading.

A quick look at my upcoming posts - I will finish up the Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge, then on to the Howell Nature Center and Wildlife Wonder Park, and then on to some more light hearted fare with images from the Michigan Renaissance Festival.

I love cattails - especially adding them to wild flower bouquets. Never been to Shiawassee NWR but would like to go - enjoy seeing your pics.

I guess I never realized there were variations in cattails. I love to cut a few for fall decorations.

Love the monarch post below.

I've got to admit I didn't know there were different varieties of cattails! I thought some looked a little different than others, but all-in-all, they're cattails. Something else to identify...

Monarchs are gorgeous butterflies. I only wish I saw them more often in my area. Nice shots.
