The common horsetail is found in every province of Canada and every state of the continental United States except for the states of Florida and Louisiana. Pushing this amazing range of terrain, habitat and geography, these brown fertile, spore-bearing male shoots are surrounded by the new growth of their female counterparts. Photographed at the edge of Gold Creek Pond at the top of Washington's Snoqualmie Pass.
