Duckweed and Reed

Daily Image - 5 December 2011 - Duckweed and Reeds

This small pond is completely covered with Duckweed, Lemna minor L., is a favourite food of local duck flocks whose travels through the surface made all the dark patterns you see in the image.

One Response to Duckweed and Reed

  1. Don’t think I’ve ever known anyone from Nova Scotia, but I, too, have been intrigued by duckweed and the patterns that animals and objects can make in it. It’s good that you’ve brought it to people’s attention. I took some duckweed pictures at a pond here in central Texas earlier this year but haven’t yet posted any of them.
