[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.

Hallo Carmam
Yet another one of your beautiful water lily presentations. The fine crinkles on the petals caught my eye and give a total different feeling to this photograph. I like the curled up edges of the leaves and the shadow of the flower itself also captured. It adds that extra touch to this already beautiful, pleasant looking scenery. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.
Best regards.

Bonjour Carmen,
C'est pour l'instant, selon moi, la photographie la moins réussie de cette série ; la fleur manque d'éclat, parait terne malgré l'éclairage et ne s'oppose pas franchement sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
