Nice shot! I like the lilly pads and the ferns at the bottom of the image make a nice sort of a frame! Nice work again!

Hello Simon, This sure is a tranquil scene you have captured. I like how the lilies fill the picture...usualy you see them in open water. I miss dad in the picture, is he around somewhere?

The madonnas of nature and their broods are a favorite subject of mine and you have added a worthy photo to my collection. I especially like the way the pond works as a backdrop that highlights the colours of the birds...

Hi si...... I'm sorry there isn't an 11 on the voting system, so I had to give it a 10.
All I can say is WOW

It took me about 2 seconds to vote (hoping someday it will count), add to favs. and place on my desktop. ;) You've got my favorite number three. You've got my favorite waterplant life. You've got an excellent composition for my folders. And, you always say thank you! ;)

Thisnis sweet. That is a mother with her two gooslings who have not turned white yet. Love the lilly pads. They are speced out just right so that a significant amount of water shows through giving the composition variety. Great work.
