Corn Dog Grass by lyndemc

Corn Dog Grass

Normally I would refer to this plant as a 'cattail' but I was curious as to what other names it might have. According to Wikipedia, Typha has many common names. "They may be known in British English as bulrush, or reedmace, in American English as cattail, catninetail, punks, or corn dog grass, in Australia as cumbungi or bulrush, in Canada as bulrush or cattail, and in New Zealand as raupō." I'd never heard them called Corn Dog grass but I can see why that name stuck.

More for the 30 Days Wild theme.
Definitely could fall into the corn dog grass class, as it does somewhat resemble a real corn dog. Great shot with the sunlight.

Love that name for it - I've often thought it looked like a corn dog - love the free look of cattails. Like the way you used the sun with it.

Beautifully captured and processed. I'd never heard that name, but I have to say, they look more like corn dogs than cat tails!

Bullrush for me! How amazing all those different names! I don't know what a corn dog is ? Is it a frankfurter sausage in a bun which we call hot dog? Sorry just confusing the whole thing! Lol! Lovely shot!
