Another beauty Murry. You really do find great spots to photograph. #124093

Gene Spears

Murry - a great spot - nice capture and an interesting photograph! I guess you're bound to find unusual things in Uncertain. #124154

Carolyn M. Fletcher

Well, Gene is right, it's Unusual..I was Uncertain what it was..But now I know! #124221

Ellen Peach

It certainlilly is beautiful....great job, Murry! #124251

Dolores Neilson

I love the way water collects in the centers of lily pads! Like the simplicity of the shot! Take care, Murry! #124263

Claudia Kuhn

Nice composition. I like the circle of water on the circular lily pad. It certainly made a good picture! #124308

Mette Vendelboe Allison

Very good and interesting picture. I like the centered composition and lighting! #124317

Murry Grigsby

I could have sworn I posted a reply earlier but I guess it's another senior moment. Thanks, Char, Gene, Carolyn, Ellen, Dolores, Claudia and Mette.

I thought the centered lilly pad was okay since the water ball was a bit off center. It was fun to watch the water roll around on the lilly pad like a ball bearing until the wind would tip it up far enough to drain. Then another gust would fill it up again and it would play roller ball for a few minutes. You can see it doesn't take much to entertain me :0) LOL, Ellen on your mis-spelling! #124346

Colette M. Metcalf

Nice work, Murry #124465
