A leaf floating down an old rice field canal caught the sunlight as it passed me by.
The water was clear with reflections of the vegetation on the canal banks appearing as rippled.
Stony lady waits
All visitors are welcome
Her bench has a view
When I took these photographs I thought these were dried leaves in an arty configuration. On closer inspection at home, I think there may be more to it as they are too precisely shaped.
Here’s a slightly closer view. It was quite breezy that day which may be why I didn’t get a closeup shot
I’m hoping to return to this spot soon, and to remember to look. If I do and they are there I’ll follow up.

A snippet of nature that made me pause as I wandered the edge of a pond.
Sometimes the light just isn’t with you.
But you like the subject. A Green Heron on a gnarly branch worked for me.
I took the color out of the first two, but left the duckweed green in this last one.
Triangles of grass and their reflections caught my eye.
The dragonfly was a bonus.
