A slight breeze skimming over pond surface creates ripples while lilies overhanging it cause squiggly reflecting long dark shadows on navy blue water bathed by bright late afternoon sun.
This scene happened several years ago near a small man-made pond out in the mountains of the Quebec Eastern Townships near the small town of Georgeville where I was visiting.
As it always happens once a lake or pond is created Mother Nature gives a helping hand decorating the fringes of the body of water with a myriad of different grasses and other plants providing locals such as small frogs, snakes, and salamanders a place to hide out waiting for their prey.
It also becomes home for various insects that lay their eggs on or near the water to hatch and fly around perhaps becoming pests to humans meanwhile, also providing a source of food for the frogs, that sometimes end up as dinner for snakes or animals such as raccoons etc.
I took this interesting picture the moment I saw those wonderful shadow patterns melding with the tiny ripples propagating across the pond’s water.
