Macro Pond Shots


There is a really pretty pond at the Wegerzhen Garden Center.   I got some cool shots there.   I’d like to share them.

The challenge here is how far out over the water I can hang without breaking park rules and going swimming!

  2. Love your pic of the “pod thing”. This is such a beautiful time of the year, the changing temperatures create such a change of landscape. Funny, the things I never realized in nature, though I have always loved the outside and appreciated it, until I started getting into photography. Your English garden pics were lovely too.
    Cheers,

  8. It sure DOES look sci-fi and surreal. I was hoping someone would see it and tell me what it is. It just sat there, lording it over the water lillies.
