You knew that was coming, didn't you? I thought I'd better fit this theme in before the Northern hemisphere loses its greens to autumn and while the Southern hemisphere is greening over for spring. Or something. smile

Could be some green here in more ways than one. Just outside of Rotorua are the Green and Blue Lakes which are next to each other. This is Lake Rotokakahi or Green Lake and yes, it does look green due to being shallow and having a sandy lake bed. Lake Tikitapu or Blue Lake looks blue due to rhyolite and pumice on the lake bed.

long way from Vegas. Are you from there originally CmdrK?

(loans Flopsy some panko flakes for those 'maters)

Howie: Great pic. In BC (near Radium) there's a lake called Olive Lake. It's called that because it's verrry verdant, all the time. Doesn't have that lush vegetation in your picture though lol

lol. Cool cat, but definitely less scary than a cat-faced spider.

(Don't worry they're harmless orb weavers)
