What’s grass doing on a lake?
Found clumps of grass floating all over the lake. Possibly some seeds got blown onto decomposing clusters of water hyacinth and they’ve formed these little islands all over.

    Gorgeous… the reflections are so perfect and there is such great tonal variation :)

    Wow! Were you standing on it or you were in a boat? We have bogs over here that could be compared a little to this. However, bogs are mostly seen on marshes, but not exclusively.

  • Standing on a boat – wouldn’t trust it to hold me with my cam in hand! These aren’t fized to a spot like bogs, but literally float all over just like the water hyacinth clumps.Literally grow on decomposing hyacinth.
