    Wow, nice work, I think the plants are very probably fluffed up seed heads Great Reed Mace (aka Cat's Tail)(Typha latifolia) - colloquially and incorrectly called bulrushes. Were there the brown spikes beneath? Sometimes Phragmites communis flowering heads can look a bit fluffly too.

    Nice work Marysan. Any chance of a little less-compressed jpeg as this has massive amounts of edge artifacts?

    Natural, not Photoshop Marise, thanks. Light on Sunday was very good - cloud cover uniform, just letting a hint of brightness through - coudn't have bettered it if I was trying in a studio! Also dead dead still mostly - a must for photographing flowers. Longer focal length lens used and the...
