    A pond covered in (?)duckweed. Picturesquely topped off by autumnal oak leaves.

  2. My first thought was a mud slurry, but the greenness really, really offsets that as ludicrous (though there is green mud). Natee’s duckweed idea makes much better sense.

    The leaves look like they are on a solid surface although a small jpeg limits the sharpness of the image when enlarged.

    A painted concrete path (leading to??) in the early Fall is my guess.

  4. and himmapaan is right on: this is the pool in the outdoor enclosure of the pygm hippos at Berlin Zoo!

    yes, it looks almost as if the leaves rest on a solid surface, but that’s caused by them resting on the duckweed!
