Great shot of the little life on the pond Yves. I really like the composition and angle of view. Very tranquil image, Mother Nature has a way of displaying calm in these very difficult times. Nicely captured Yves.

Thank you for the nice comment Debra. Agree, nature has a nice way to calm down ourself. We must not hide behind it dough. Rise up and accept to pay the price for the living planet we love.

A beautiful close-up of the activity on the blossom and I love how it is reflected on the water. The lily pads add a wonderful semi-abstract surround for the main focus of this image making for an exceptional capture. Gorgeous tones and detail here too, Yves.

Thank you so much for your appreciation. Of course the marsh is covered with those water lilies and I love the carpet effect it does. I choose that specific one for the upright red leaf and the nice reflection you noticed. Just had to wait for some bees to complete the shot..

Always a pleasure to picture the marvellous partnership between bees and the virginale water lilies of the marsh.
