06.16.2021 Lily Pads as Pacman

0-6.12.2021 Saturday Night Soaker

It was raining when I left the house this morning but radar showed it letting up to the north and, sure enough, when I arrived at the pond it had stopped.  But the evidence remained. White Water-lily-Nymphaea odorata

07.01.2020 White Water-lily Wednesday

08.22.2019 I can’t stop with the water-lilies.

They are irresistible, I think. And with many other things, are all just a bit different. I liked the subtle warm glow reflecting off the inner petals. This flower was absolutely gorgeous and deserving of a portrait. Both shots were … Continue reading

07.23.2019 Water-lilies
