Winter time - Cat-tails and Great Grey Owl.Stunning photography here! The cat tails pick up the color of the owl's feathers beautifully, which makes the eyes stand out as a completely unique color against the backdrop of blue/gray.
Cattails 'bloom' in mid- to late summer. into a brown, velvety cigar shape, creating the "cattail" of the plant. These will go to seed in the fall, and as they do, will become white and fuzzy and eventually die until next season.
Kitty Speak - this is interesting. some people believe that because cats have different "tail" language than dogs this is the reason for their feuding. But when a dog is raised as a young pup with cats, he learns cat "tail language".
