You're most welcome.

...and you do make "pretty things".

I also seriously considered Fire Water 9, even though it lacked much of the fire element that was a focus of these photos. Something about the geometric pattern of the Lily pads really struck me.
Maybe you should've narrowed it to three pictures instead of two.

I checked back at number nine...I can see your attraction to the lily pad pattern...perhaps if you cropped it you could have the best of both worlds--the pattern and a better composition. Just my opinion.

Cool. I learned something new.

Default The Real Pond

The only problem with this pond is that, after I go to the bother of putting on my flippers, and goggles, I still can't see anything.

I think the last picture is a green frog in the POND.

Well, it seems this series has a bit of something for everyone. I guess as the contest is ending I'll have to include more of thes as space allows. Who knows if I'll even have any more water pics before it's through. Certainly not next week when I'm in NM again. They're in a drought and when NM calls it a drought, you know it's dry!

Uh, I thought we were allowed two a week for eight weeks. Counting my heron pic, I've posted six. It's been awhile since math class but...

Oh, well. Does the heron count since it's been dubbed a bird pic rather than a water pic?
