Watery Wednesday: reflecting pond or ...

This robin turns away to reflect on the existence of a pond where he's never seen one before. He must be new to our neighborhood, because our corner often floods like this after a heavy rain. We don't always get beautiful reflections in the large puddle, however, because cars and bicycles splash through it.

Love the reflection and the colors! :O)

Carver said...

That's a gorgeous reflection.

James said...

Awesome reflection! It's so clear and I love the blue sky and clouds.

Regarding your comment. Actually SF and LA would both stay in California because neither one were mentioned as counties that would split. It's fun to talk about but the chances of it happening are next to none. :)

That is a huge puddle Kay! Great reflection. You must have caught the light and the angle just right to get such clarity.

Lesley said...

That is quite a flooded roadway!

Wow! If you didn't explain, I would have thought that it is a stream. Surprised to see such clear reflections in a 'puddle'. Flood can be beautiful. :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Love the cute story you created with this delightful photo!

Lynette Killam said...

That is a great shot, Kay,a simply glorious reflection! I imagine Dick had to be quick on the draw to get this one...LOL.

Kay said...

Looks like you've got a beautiful day reflected in that pond also.

If I didn't look closely enough I would have missed the robin...I was busy looking at the reflections of the puffy 'cotton ball' clouds.


Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!

Bonjour Kay,
This picture is magnificent, with perfect reflections!
Very well done!

VioletSky said...

well, it makes a unique pond!
I hope it doesn't seep into your basement.

Oh, that robin is so cute, as if it says, "Which way do I go now?"

I kinda wish the robin had perched a little closer to the water so I could see its reflection too!


Water on Wednesday
And other days too,
Water for me, friend,
And water for you;

Water as ocean
And water as sea,
Water for you, friend,
And water for me;

Every day water
In puddle or ice
Or snowflakes or mist—
Oh, water is nice!

That is a great reflection Kay. The puddle is so still, looks like there was a long break in the traffic. Mr. Robin does look a little confused.

Leslie said...

beautiful reflection!

I like puddle shots! Maybe that puddle is too deep for the robin!
