This elephanthead was already losing its full summer leaf a few weeks ago. I found it along the lake edge at Twin Lakes. Its colour and its character caught my eye.
It has a short season thus reminding us that summer is fleeting. It should be enjoyed while it is here. I've done what I could to make the best of what the weather offered.
I noticed something else. When I saw it enlarged it reminded me of Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu deity. Ganesha is looked to in several areas including wisdom, success, as the remover of obstacles, and writing.
Do you see it, too?
