Olivia asked how long it took to acclimate the plants.
This shows that as soon as the plants are in, local wildlife species, start setting up house.
There are four different kinds of dragon flies, vying for space here at the pond. The aerial dogfights are spirited.
The thing I`ve been wondering all along is, is it fair to build your own photo opportunity studio.
As more life is added to the pond including more plants, fish, turtles, snails & crawfish, predators move in, such as herons, egrets, raccoons, skunks, coyotes & bobcats.
The area is well fenced but most of the mentioned animals are quite adaptive & McGuyver entry through various means. I like every one to have a fighting chance, so the pond has many hiding places incorporated in, to offer refuge from becoming dinner.
The rock star pictured on Planet Earth, is my old friend Jorge, who has been doing rock work for me for over thirty years.
His shades reflect the clouds reflected in the jacuzzi. They also reflect that I inserted them into the shades.
Have a great day.
