These cat-tails were practically all that remained of the foliage surrounding 
the retention pond near Lafayette and Georgetown Roads.
Everything had been mowed down the large fenced area, 
destroying habitat for water birds that live/d there.
Across the pond a quartet of trees reflected their images
on to the pond's surface, a quiet presence that helped to 
fill in the empty space surrounding them.
Perhaps next year the undergrowth will return, creating
a nursery for the offspring of geese and ducks.

Lovely image... but thoughtless of whoever did that around the water in the first place.

Wow! Great still water, Speedway. Those cat-tails help me to understand where you Colonials got the idea of deep fried things on sticks.

That's a nice the way the rippled reflection starts where the reeds end.
