Natural Abstract

For most of the year, the Farm Wetlands is an oasis of color.   Wild Iris provide yellow and blue hues and wild lilies carpet the shore line in white but this time of the year, the only color is the algae which is forming up along the shore line of the large beaver pond.   Viewed through a 50mm lens, it turns into a natural abstract.

Contrary to popular belief, Algae is not a bad thing. Nearly all algae have photosynthetic machinery ultimately derived from the Cyanobacteria.  As a result, it produces oxygen as a by-product of photosynthesis.   See you next time on most of this same blog.

  1. It does look like an abstract.

    We certainly need algae in the great cycle of life….We just have to be wise, and keep the balance of nature in tack…Balance is such an important aspect of our lives and in nature, isn’t it?…Thank you for getting me thinking this morning….
