Lake Hodgson Shows Its Beauty.

The Spring has been very healthy for Lake Hodgson. The early Spring rains have brought much nutrition into the lake. The Water lilies are in full bloom along the shoreline.
This view shows how many blooms are in the water Lilly bed.
This is a flower without rival with its white petals surrounding the wonderful bright yellow center.
I captured a single bloom on the long stem floating away from the main bed. I love the reflection of the shape in the water.

Nice photos Fishing Guy. Great cloud reflection in the first one and I like the last photo of the lily.

These are a very nice set of photos that do a lot in describing your environment. I suspect snakes, turtles, frogs and birds of every description call this place home. Nice photography.

beautiful photos. So glad the spring rains are helping out the country side.
The fawn in my blog is a whitetail, just an extreamly healthy little one. The genetics in this paticular area is outstanding. Have a great week and I hope you get to go out and do some fishing soon.

So pretty - I really like the 4th one, the way the clouds are reflecting in the water around the flower. Nice shots!
