Spotted at Flora, Cologne's botanical garden, some weeks ago.

Got my picture on large and as I scroll down, the reflection is a wonderful surprise. Like the way you have photographed this, like you are invisible to them.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Might have been 50m, I was sitting on a bench on the other side of the pond. If these ladies appear very tiny: they actually were. :-)

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Very nice & luminous scene. The reflection is very interesting. You know what ? What do you think about a square size, who would give exactly the same importance to the reality and its reflection ?? Even more impact, no ?

@Evelyne Dubos: That's a good suggestion! I'll try it and will post it somewhere else for having a comparison.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

I really laugh when so the bottom halves ! At first look I said - so what , what is cool here , what they are looking at .. and then, when saw all picture it was really so cool reflection . Almost symmetry !

The way the ladies are next to the tree, and the rocks in front of them, the length of their coats and no feet make them look about 2 feet tall :)

@Christine Walsh: Actually they were quite tiny. :-)

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Midway downwards...it's very beautiful, with the lush grasses and the reflection! The lilipads are like subtle accents on the water....

@Japanalia: That happened some weeks ago, the same scenery should look much greener now.
