A Hot One
It certainly is a hot one today, and perhaps a bit too warm to spend much time at the aquatic gardens. I wasn't the only one though - several photographers, young couples, and moms with multiple little ones were admiring the lotuses in all stages of bloom. This is one of the last photos I took, after I spotted movement on top of a bud. I thought it was plant material in the breeze until I got a closer look and realized it was a praying mantis which eventually made its way down the stem. I'm also including a green heron high up on a tree branch because I love these colorful guys.
Thank you for stopping by!
