This is one of a pair of that were grazing along a levy.

I had to remove an annoying Cattail stem that was going right through her head. Hopefully, you won't notice.

My gosh, a cattail...right through her head!!! Poor deer, was she in pain? Did it hurt when you pulled it out? Was there any blood? She must have been tame or desperate to let you do that. In any case everything must have gone ok, cause she looks fine and no sign of any wound. Good job smac.

Great shot. Nicely done with the blurred background. Also very interesting shadows on the head and body, adds to the beauty of the shot. Patient looks real healthy to me.

Shoot this with the $5000 Pana teleconverter? (kidding...) Very nice. You're quite the nature shooter.

Well I must say this Pana teleconverter is quite a lens. And it was $5000 Pluse shiping. :-)
Thanks for the compliment, I really enjoy just being out there and I am very fortunate to be so close to this amazing place.

All the best to your clom friends, and best regards to you Nick,

Actually there are many fine recipes that use cattails.
In honor of Nick I have included one below. Soup or course.

Cattail Wild-Rice Soup

1 cup dry wild rice* (4 cups cooked)
2 Tbsp sesame oil
˝ cup chopped green onion
2 cups cattail shoots, sliced (about 30 cattails)
2 tsp salt


1.* Cook the wild rice until tender.
2.* In a heavy-bottomed soup pot sauté onion and cattail shoots in sesame oil until tender and translucent.
3.* Add the cooked wild rice, salt and 4 cups of chicken broth or other soup stock of choice.
4.* Simmer together for 15-20 minutes and serve.

This is no joke. Here is a link for other Cattail recipes:
