Native Buttons

Ahh, I love sights like this on my survey paddles on the lake - this is the superb buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis):

There is the sense of these flowers having a halo around them, the way their pistils reach out beyond the substantial center. Birds and insects love these plants for their nectar and seeds.

It's a perfect bank-stabilizing shrub on shorelines.
