Lily Pond at Bernheim

The first image you see is a close up of the second image of the lily pond at Bernheim. It's odd really, but this is a very small lily pond that is netting a lot of blooms and has quite a variety in the species at that. I'm thinking I'd like to photograph more of the pond in a few weeks. There was one pod that wasn't open that I wasn't sure what it was really because it didn't have the usual flower bud shape. However, in my haste to photograph the varieties I failed to get a photograph of it. Perhaps another time. Besides the flowers and especially the varieties at Bernheim I really like the shape of lily pads. I don't know what it is but it's a friendly sort of shape I think. I haven't any clue what the photo is of the large leaves with red stalks. If you do, please share.

Oh and least I forget, is that a "young" dragonfly. Sorry but he just looks really small for a dragonfly and I only remember seeing what I believe are adult dragonflies in the past. Alright, I confess, I know nothing about dragonflies. Obviously I need field guides for wildflowrs and dragonflies. I believe Sandy mentioned this in a prior comment. I swear I'll buy some field guides soon as I return from my trip. Enjoy!

  1. That little dragonfly looks as though he is trying to pry the bud open. What a glorious shot! Even the colors are complimentary - like striking gold!
