Barred horsetail and more Pond Life
Having redesigned, realised that the internal shelving of the pond isn’t quite what it should’ve been for the best views… Anyway, a few plants are in now as is the weird double-handed milk jug we cadged off the blokes at the dump 20 years ago.

The phenomenon occurs only if there has been enough snow and rain, if the skies are clear and if the setting sun strikes the water at an angle that creates the illusion of lava. @vjamesphoto donned his waders and stepped into the Merced River to take this photo of Horsetail Fall's glowing transformation.
