Today I’m participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and her theme is “water”. I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view.

If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

We see water in many forms and amounts every day. Without water there would be no life on earth, so let’s make sure we take care of it. Water can appear in front of us powerful and in motion, as in these waves of the Pacific Ocean on a cloudy and breezy day.

Water can also be very still and peaceful, as in this small pond that was behind the house we stayed at in Virginia.

Birds drink water, and they also use it to take baths. This iridescent grackle bird was very busy getting clean in the gardens of the Smithsonian castle.

Water is a habitat for many animals, including this frog popping its head out of the water to keep an eye on me.

You’ll have no idea how many turtles can hide underwater until they come out to bask in the sun. Can you guess how many turtles are sitting on these rocks?

    I’m guessing 16 turtles. It’s kind of like one of those contests where you have to guess how many items are in the jar. 🙂

    Fantastic all but I especially love the first one with the shimmering light on the sea!

  4. All your pics are so pretty! The frog’s head sticking out is so cool!

    That pond shot is really lovely, Milka. It looks a nice place to linger. 🙂

  6. Great photos, all! I thought I loved the bird best, but then, there was the frog! The reflections of the tree limbs really make that shot. All are wonderful!
