Lanced-leaved Arrowhead

Lanced-leaved ArrowheadLanced-leaved Arrowhead – Sagittaria lancifolia

Spring reminds me of migrating birds, warmer temperatures, disappearing snow and flowers. I photographed this Lance-leaved Arrowhead at Roosevelt Wetland in Pinellas County, Florida several years ago. This herbaceous plant is also called Duck Potato partly because you can cook the tuber for about thirty minutes and eat it like a potato.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.

    Hi I forgot to say! When cattails are young and green with some yellow to it you can dip them in batter and deep fry! They are like corn dogs( be sure to season them.
