magic in the woods

By Paree
I was in the forest yesterday just taking some shots for a picture,
I walked into a clearing, and just could not believe my eyes,
sitting in front of me near to a magic pool,was a mermaid, with a new born
baby I couldn't believe my eyes, or my luck,
just goes to show that if the magic is about you never know what might happen.
hope you like this candid shot,

A lovely shot. You were lucky to be in the right place at the right time. I see the Green Man was there too.
This makes a nice change from your usual excellent manipulations.
Well done. Eric.

Maureen your imagination is beyond measure.
Another wonderful image and the new born baby looks so good. Forests are magical places and you make them more so.

I still think you should call your kitten 'CRACKER'.

Hello My fair Maureen! Let me see what is in this for the eye today... Well as for me... I love most the way you created your own tunnel of tree paths to make sure we don't miss your find... Nice tweaking if I might say so myselfSmile Glad you decided also to keep your green man for the insigniaSmile Nice piece.
