I've been having a quiet day at home: did laundry, revised a Torchwood fanfic story (haven't gotten up the nerve to post it yet), and did some grocery shopping -- it was time for a Trader Joe's run, so I walked around Arlington Reservoir first. Lovely, steamy hot day. I love summer!

tree in water
This tree apparently fell over some time ago but it is alive and well. It looks like the greenery toward the top of it is new growth. It's somehow adapted to living in the water.

bees on flowers
Bees visiting some flowers. I don't know what kind of flowers these are. Or what kind of bees for that matter! :-) And bees now remind me of Doctor Who (having just rewatched "Stolen Earth" last night. Yes, I'm such a geek.)

The tree in the water is wonderful! I love the reflection :-)
All of these are outstanding photos.

Thanks. Yes, it was a really clear day yesterday so there were wonderful reflections in the water. :-)

The smaller bee is a yellow jacket. I can't tell from the photo about the other bee. The yellow jacket is most likely visiting to eat the other insects visiting the flower or for the water.
