I missed the last 3 challenges...this challenge was just too tempting to pass up. About froze my fanny off getting this shot. I was actually hoping the wind would blow a couple of these seeds off of the cattail - but the breeze wasn't strong enough. Certainly gave it enough time! Oh well...here's to another 5.5xxx. :-)

Nice photo, but isn't very dramatic. Maybe a little brighter would help?
