Softstem bulrush

Here are the flowers of a female bulrush. Mostly, anyway. If you look closely at the left flower head, you can see a little gender confusion. This image was taken on 6/13. Why so much earlier than the other image? This is a more typical date. The first image was probably a plant that had been damaged, maybe eaten when young. Probably didn't have much success finding mates in October, but credit for trying.
