Pussy Willows

Friends, these pussy willows have gone to seed and all are rushing to be first in line to be photographed. They are really male catkins of the willow tree covered with stamens they appear very early in the spring.  In Crex they are a dominant vegetation in the wet areas. Below is an image of an earlier version of pussy willows.
