My flickr contact and friend Gary Sharp is visiting and took a picture of our “pond” with his iPhone and Hipstamatic. Our pond isn’t much of a pond anymore, various storms and floods have turned it into more of a swamp/mud pit. Still, it’s got some huge bull frogs in it, among other fauna and flora.
I was planning to take pictures of deer in Evelyn’s front meadow where a herd of them is usually hanging out. Two were there but they ran away so I walked down to the the pond. The birches were amazing and the water had no signs of ice on it after two warm days and displayed a painterly reflection of the trees.
