Ahoy there me hearties!!

Upon a river like a boat,
I saw an autumn leaf afloat,
A yellow ship with golden masts,
It fluttered once and drifted past,
And as I sat beneath my tree,
I saw him and he saw me,
With one arm raised he floated by,
And I'm sure I heard him call out....Hi

I borrowed the first four lines from Robert Louis Stevenson, at least I think it is his, as I thought they worked rather well with the image.

Spotted this little chap being blow around by the wind on the pond and he really did appear to be waving!!

Best viewed large!

What a fabulous shot Jo, not only a great nature shot but it has elements of humour too. I agree with Taffy @taffy that it looked abstract at first. So glad to see you posting again, an instant fav.
