[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Egypt is known as the starting place of the ancient civilizations. "A water lily" has been Egypt's national flower for about 4000 years. It can be seen anywhere on the river Nile, especially the "blue water lily". The blue water lily has been loved by Egyptians for a long time. It was also considered the "God of the Resurrection", so it is sometimes laid on the tomb of "Mica". A few pieces of blue and white water lily flower picture have been found in the tomb of Rames II (ca. B.C. 13th century). Most of the Arab countries have followed Egypt's custom of adopting a water lily as the national flower.

Nice composition Dan, even if the "thing" in the background is a bit annoying. Otherweise very nice colours and good perspective. Well done!

Exquisite shot of the water lily bloom. The details are so sharp, the flower looks real. Beautiful colors and light and excellent composition. Well done and TFS. : )
