[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I see a lot of animals on TN I still would like to put the spots on a very common water-lilly in a playful light. Photo taken at a nature-reserve Molsbroek in Lokeren.

Molsbroek is a bird sanctuary , a halting-place for mainly ducks but also a variety of other water-birds like grebes, sometimes swans and other protected duks like the Anas strepera and Anas clypeata nesting here.This year you see a lot of Canadian duks passing by.

Nuphar luteum
Yellow Pond Lily, also called Spatterdock, is a native water lily which grows in lakes, ponds, and slow-moving rivers. It is a perennial, which means it dies back in the winter, but grows again from the roots each Spring.

Yellow Pond Lily has thick leaves, which can be round or heart-shaped. They are large, growing up to 12 inches wide. The leaves are attached to a long stalk which extends down into the water and into the mud below. When the water level drops (especially in rivers, streams, or marshes affected by tides), the leaves will be above the water. When the water level rises again, the leaves will float on the water.

The flowers of this plant are yellow, with thick petals. Fruit are shaped like pods and contain many seeds.

De Gele Plomp (Nuphar luteum) heeft net als de waterlelie een sterke overblijvende wortelstok en bladeren op lange stengels. Vaak zie je beide soorten bij elkaar. De bloemen zijn geel en geuren sterk. De bloeitijd is ook juni tot augustus. Beschermde plant!

An intresting image but it lacks the explanitory note, which are as important as the image on TN. it would be nice to learn about both the water lilly and about the nature reserve it's in.

Die hierboven denkt dat hij het warm water heeft uitgevonden. Ge kunt best een boek schrijven en hem opsturen. Zowel foto als uitleg mag er zijn. Verwacht niet te veel punten van deze foto, er staat geen beestje op.
