The Beauty of River Weed


Here in the Dordogne the river weed (podostemaceae) is flowering. Yesterday we took a little canoe trip and snapped a few shots.

  1. It was a wonderful opportunity to get some shots – being in a canoe. A tad worried I might drop the camera overboard! The amazing thing about the weed is the amount of wildlife it draws to it. Frogs were croaking in it, blue damsel flies were everywhere, ducks were foraging in it, and the cows were pulling up great mouthfuls and chewing happily. And it’s so pretty!

I'd love your thoughts ...
