Ponds and Streams in Lesvos

Lesvos is blessed with more water than most of the other Aegean islands and therefore is rich in agriculture as well as wetlands. These are photos of some of the ponds, rivers and tidal pools. In spring and summer they are still full of water and wildlife, including turtles, frogs, snakes, birds and whatever other animals come by for a drink. We always save our extra bread to feed the turtles when we come upon one of these pools.
