Love the composition in the top photo--just remembered: haven't hounded you about that book in a while . . .

This looks like my pond. I don't mind duckweed and pennywort, but I have a beast called Chara algae...stinkweed, muskweed..it's a real pain in the bass.

I love the 1st shot. They look as if they are on their way to somewhere, single file (singing "Hi-ho, hi-ho ...")

swamp4me said...

sara, now that you mention it, I could swear that I heard singing...

FC, we've had more algae this year but I'm not sure of the species. I'll have to Google Chara, because I'm not familiar with it -- although it does sound lovely :)

SQMojo, you're the creative one, maybe we could collaborate on that book :)

Swampy, if you are interested in getting Photoshop then I recommend Photoshop Elements 3.0 - it's a fraction of the cost of the full-on Photoshop but has 95% of the image editing features. I bought it a couple of weeks ago, on the recommendation of a professional photographer. It's very good though as yet I have little idea how to use it. Therefore, following your example, I've given up housework in favour of doing more interesting stuff like learning Photoshop ;-)

Good job, SGJ! When it comes to housework, just say no!!
I'll check into that software. Thanks for telling me about it.

Housework is just so... SCARY!! Those dust bunnies can be HUGE. I prefer to stick to the outside critters.

Speaking of scary.. last night I heard a noise out back, grabbed my blinding high beam flash light and went for a peek. The cats are all lounging around like nothing going on, so I know there isn't a 'person' out there. I sneak to the greenhouse to find 2! I repeat TWO big fat raccoons playing in the greenery.

I was wondering where all the cat food was going!!
