Gathering Cattail Pollen

IMG_9660-001    The cattail flower head has two distinct parts, a flower head, green cylinder in this picture that turns the characteristic brown, and the yellow pollen that is only seen sometime between May through July.  I am collecting cattail pollen in June.  Once the flower head is pollinated, the pollen stem withers away.
