06.13.2022 Texture and Tension (Surface…the good kind)

Sometimes the frog journey provides other subjects.  Yesterday at Moosehorn Pond I heard but saw no frogs.  Not surprising as it was a moderately chilly morning.  However the lily pads are up and one or two had accompanying blooms. This one pad got my attention so I decided to photograph it for others to enjoy.

  1. Gorgeous – geometry and coloration – oh to be tiny enough to soak in that pool atop the pad, legs dangling deeper (inspires a fairy scenario!)

  2. The intrusive water calls attention to itself. Is that a common phenomenon?

    I remember learning that lily pads ‘clean’ themselves by means of a coating that sheds dirt and water. I suspect it’s that coating that’s created the fun little puddle in this leaf. Yes? The underwater ‘medallion’ adds to the attractiveness of the image.

    They float so well thanks to very tiny hairs that trap air underneath… another marvel of nature. 🙂

    Beautiful photo. I really like to watch and sometimes photograph, my pond and its plants. So much changes throughout the day.

  7. I do like this, Steve! Nice composition and that edge displaying the surface tension is just fascinating.

    I wonder if when froggy goes a courtin’ he says, “come on over to my pad!”
