They're very common, but I never did learn their proper name, any help would be much appreciated!

Yes, the sun's piercing rays really did illuminate these little gems!

jonny, you just beat me to it. Same "horse tail" area. I've seen these as well as a smaller variety. As kids we used to pull these apart and pretend that they were cigarettes! Not very politically correct these days!

Thanks again guys. Here's a few more that I captured yesterday while using the sun's as my guiding light.

I should point out that the fisrt one is actually a reflection

off the water. Notice how the sunlight is captured coming through the leafs in the reflection thus making them appear much darker.

Two general types of horsetail I've seen. This one, which has a thick stalk and no feathering, and the kind that looks more like an actual horsetail, which has a thinner stalk and a lot of feathering.
