Hello Allen! I have been trying to see this shot of yours and this is the first evening I've been successful at seeing the full shot instead of just the thumbnail. Beautiful shot!! I have been trying to get back to adding new photos on here but it has been disappointing that I have not been able to see anyone elses in larger version :(

A big thank-you to all of my CGPC friends....I appreciate your time and effort to view this and give such great comments!

In the spring, the woodland pools of the deep dark forest are still and reflective, with no hint of the frenzy of activity that will unfold in short order. Under the water surface, there will be myriad invertebrates as well as frogs and salamanders busily beginning another season of life. This scene is much colder at the present time, being frozen over as the inhabitants wait out the next few months buried in the mud or suspended in their winter torpor. This was photographed at Rondeau Provincial Park at the extreme southwestern part of Ontario.
