[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautifully painted flower of the so called whater Hycinth was photographed in the park from Arucas.
In its natural habitat this plant is a real pest. It can cover huge surfaces of Asian and African lakes, asphyxiating everything else.
It is not like the lotus leave lying on the water, but floating because there are some air bags in the stems just before the leaves.

A jewel and a pest!

Hope you like and thanks for commenting

Hello Karin,
Those delicate flowers are so well depicted!
Fine details in the petals and the colours seem very natural...
A pleasant composition, DOF spot on isolates the flowers well from background!

Hallo Karin
Absolutely beautiful. The arrangement of colours of these flowers blends in well with one another. Although blue, the patterns on the flower looks like fire flames. I am really very fond of purple and this is a special photo to me. The detail is great and the focus is just right. This is a stunning flower.Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
