Reservoir

We were getting hot and bothered after our walk around Mapperley Reservoir this morning.  Setting out, it was a nice day and a light breeze kept things cool enough, but it soon turned hot and sticky as we sat to have a rest and a flask of coffee.  The reservoir itself was looking peaceful and in places, covered with water lilies.
Getting down to the water's edge, you get a different view of things and it wasn't long before a Coot came looking to see if we had food.
On such a warm day, even the Coots were too hot to be bothered to bicker amongst themselves, preferring to take things easy.
Close by, the wavy edges of the Sweet Flag (Acorus calamus) waved slightly in the breeze.  All rather peaceful and just the thing for a warm summer day.
