    Ooh! This makes me feel the bracing cold!

  2. John says:

    I love them, they remind me of fun winter days ice skating on ponds in Michigan as a child. 🥰

  3. Vicki says:

    What a beautiful shot. The lighting was superb on that day.

    It does look a bit cold in the background.

  4. Maria says:

    Frozen cattails, brrr cold and beautiful.

  5. Dawn Minott says:

    Snow already?! Beautiful pic, as always, Eliza!!!!

  6. Alice says:

    Cattails look like hotdogs on a stick! Fluffies still intact…we had fun changing that, when we were young.

  8. Those frosty cattail tips are so pretty! (So are wintering weeds.)

  9. Wonderful photo. It would make a lovely card. 🙂

    I have never seen cattails so pretty.

  11. derrycats says:

    Lovely shot, nice bokeh. Captures the transition from fall to the start of winter very nicely.

  12. So pretty! And I love how they stand at attention. We leave all the weeds at the edge of our yard for our feathered friends. And the perennials in the garden don’t get cut back until spring.

  13. Your frosty capture is gorgeous, Eliza! Great message, yes, leave-&-feed the birds!! 💞

    Lovely and serene 🍂🫧🧡❤️

  15. shoreacres says:

    Both frost and snow make cattails glow!

  16. Debbie says:

    These look like corn dogs from the county fair — nice shot, Eliza!

  17. Pretty cattails! They did we’ll here this year with all our rain and I always think about photographing them … but never do. There’s a whole list of projects that I never do! I will be leaving my weeds as is this winter!

  18. It’s looking frosty, very pretty though!

  19. Tina says:

    Really beautiful photo, Eliza. I like the juxtaposition of the cattails with the curly plants–and the frosty topping is perfection!

  20. Beautiful Eliza, your own post cards🕊💕💯

  21. Pepper says:

    I see snow! 😁 Lovely photo of the snowy cattails.

  22. Kris P says:

    I gather winter has arrived! At least the scenery is beautiful.

  23. Love this post, Eliza. Full of interesting tid bits of info on wildlife. Love your photo of the wintering bird. A true snow bird 🙂 Your Cattails photo is remarkably stunning! A treat for the heart. 🙂

    Cat tails are always so very photogenic, aren’t they? Beauty!

  25. Widdershins says:

    Whispering tall tales to each other, of warmer climes and better times. 🙂

    Good advice! I sometimes try to persuade Mum to leave her seed heads uncut, but she’s genuinely uneasy with it if it isn’t neatened. A lifetime of having that suggested, I suppose. She does love nature and puts out food for the birds instead. This is a wonderful scene and colours too.

  27. Val Boyko says:

    Beautiful 🥰 Warms the heart on a chilly day!

  28. naturebackin says:

    What a gorgeous shot and lovely reminder to leave seedheads standing to feed the birds.

  29. spanishwoods says:

    I love cat tails… this shot is stunning

  30. Lovely! Despite the cold, there’s nothing quite so delightful as a little frosting on the remains of a wonderful summer.

  31. The seed heads of cattails and goldenrod make a great fall combination.

  32. Pretty! Love the structure at the top that the frost reveals.
