Last week marked the 87th annual Pony Swim and auction here on Chincoteague Island.
For all those who live here it is a tradition we are happy to see come and then go as it brings with it a large congregation of tourists which makes for one of the busiest, most demanding weeks of the year if you are in business, as we are.
Last year I posted about the Pony Auction here.
So on Monday, our day off, I ventured out to the pool for a little R&R and this is the first thing I saw when I got into the water.
A Pony shaped leaf.
I took a picture of it as it lay underwater, (see below) but it was really hard to get into focus as the water kept rippling, so I gently raised it up onto the edge of the pool for this shot.
The veins in the leaf coincide perfectly with the outline of the horse head don't you think?
It's amazing what you can see when you take the time to notice and really look. That's why i love I Heart Macro.
Head on over to Studio Waterstone and see what everyone else focused on this week!
