Under the water at Lost CreekThis was taken at Lost Creek -- It was so interesting to see all the things under water as I was trying to capture the flow of the water... Note the snails too.

Snails & tadpoles in the desert?Yep! Several species of spring snails can be found at Red Rock. They are tiny little critters -- about 1/4 inch in diameter. Today, they were sharing their small space with tadpoles, and all kinds of other amazing creatures.

A raindropShot under a mild drizzle, I was fascinated how this teeny tiny drop of rain simply sits on the leaf.

Red Winethis is not red wine, its fruit punch, I want to color the water but can't find any food coloring.{(Just want to thank my daughter for wiping the splatter on the floor after each pour..she's so sweet. :)}

Silver Surfer or Aquaman?While going through my shots, maybe its my imagination but I thought this water spill has a human form, I was going to call him aquaman but my son said he looks more like the silver surfer.

Water, Water, Who Sees the Water ??Our 40 year old well went dry so we had a new 600 ft well dug. We had a 'witcher' come out to find the perfect location. The 2 gentleman you see in the picture are wondering what do do next as no water is coming out of the well. Unfortunately, it's dry!

Small StreamEverything has been so dry here in Colorado Springs that it has been hard to find any running water. I did manage to find a spot today and here they are. It was about 96 degrees so what I really wanted to do was go swimming!

Fox RiverAll rivers, even the most dazzling, those that catch the sun in their course, all rivers go down to the ocean and drown. And life awaits man as the sea awaits the river. - Simone Schwarz-Bart
