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?

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is water. Water is a precious resource in Southern California. “Precious” as in rare, and as in expensive. They aren’t many large areas of water around San Diego (besides the huge Pacific Ocean) and what are labeled as “lakes” here would probably be labeled as “ponds” in most other states.

I have a lot of photos of water to share. Ocean water, river water, rain drops, dew drops, frozen water… So I think a photo gallery will be best. You can click on any image to view all of them in a slideshow format. I’ve used these photos in previous posts so I’ve left the original captions. This way, if you’d like to view the original post, just search for the caption text in my website’s Search box.

I hope you enjoy these photos of water!
