[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nymphaea is a genus of aquatic plants in the family Nymphaeaceae. There are about 50 species in the genus, which has a cosmopolitan distribution.

The common name, shared with some other genera in the same family, is water-lily or waterlily.

The name Nymphaea comes from the Greek term "Νυμφαία", possibly related to "Νύμφη" meaning "nymph". The nymphs in Greek mythology were supernatural feminine beings associated with springs, so the application of the name to delicately flowered aquatic plants is understandable.

Bonjour Carmen,
Le cadrage est un peu trop serré, à mon goût, sur le bas de l'image mais le graphisme des pétales est remarquable et rehaussé par de délicates nuances de couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
