Pride of The Pond


There's just something about waterlilies that just draw me to them. I believe it is a sweet memory from my youth when we visited our Quebec relatives on their Lake. I was always thrilled to pick the waterlilies closes to the shore and save them as a centerpiece in a glass bowl on our dinning table, but Mom would not like some of the tiny creatures that would fly off...I would just giggle and tell her we now need some the frogs to eat those bugs...and she would show me her look of distaste!!!! Mom never was an outdoorsy girl!!!!

Goodness me, the photos in your header are so gorgeous, especially the deer and fawn.

The waterlillies always make for such a peaceful scene I feel.

Yes Susan, that was such a treat for us...and quit by accident!!! We were headed over to a local garden center to buy some annuals for our little gardens at our trailer, so that is why I had my camera....I Love shooting the blooms close-up especialy if there are insects. And here pops out Momma and the Little One, she runs back in the deep grass but Momma waits for her patiently to come back out, when she does she takes a peak at us, then starts to nurse!!!!! It was such a thrill!!!! I was shocked to see the shots were not too blurry through our wet car windshield....I've been living up here in the North now for 18 years and this was my first experience seeing such a young fawn!!!!!
