I took this picture of a pond in my front yard while at home self isolating. I took this because I liked how the algae looked with leaves and with the reflection of the water as well. At first I just liked the different combination of textures, but after some editing where I chose to exaggerate the colors, the algae to me looks extraterrestrial instead. I would like to think that someone looking at this photo would enjoy the brightness of the colors, and see the usually under appreciated and unwanted algae as a plant with vibrant beauty.
