Lilly Pond

By dark_lord  
A thatched cottage and lilly pond in the village of Badger, Shropshire.

In the late 1990s when the craze of the mutant ninja turtles was around, many terrapins were discarded into waterways across the country including in this pond - I do have an image of one basking on a fallen log in the water. No sign of them now. Nor the log.

Thank you to all who left a comment or voted on Bus Stop.

Now that is a lily-pond. Claude Monet would go crazy here, trying to include all these lily pads! A quintessential English thatched cottage. Well captured and presented.

A wonderful English country scene Keith, I wonder if the Man in the door way is concerned with your photography, but I dont see a shot gun....John

Terrapin/Red eared Sliders etc are still doing damage to ecological systems though out the world with heavy fines being imposed for releasing them into the wild, wild life and fish stocks have been heavily effected.
