Special Effects

There's so much to contend with while photographing plants from a bobbing kayak - the current, ripples, one's own shadow, reflections, obstructions, not getting your camera wet ...

Here are a few which turned out a tad artsy because I couldn't see my screen when I snapped a picture.

It's as if an image of peacock feathers has been superimposed over the scene

These are all unintentional special effects - physics deserves all the credit.
