In a cowslip's bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat's back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

Beautiful shot - very fitting!

This was also taken at Vienna Zoo last week, a pond full of different species of water lilies! Although the time of day was not ideal (around noon!!), they were so wonderful, I could not resist. Did several of them.

Thanks again - have a nice Sunday, all of you kind people!!
