[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Water lilies are rooted in soil in bodies of water, with leaves and flowers floating on the water surface. The leaves are round, with a radial notch.
Water lilies are divided into two main categories: hardy and tropical. Hardy water lilies bloom only during the day, but tropical water lilies can bloom either day or night, and are the only group to contain blue-flowered plants.

Water lilies can be fragrant, such as Nymphaea alba:)
Thanks for looking,
Greetings,

Bahadır

Hello Bahadir,
very beautiful Nymphaea flowers, nicely composed and focused. good notes.
Best regards Siggi

Hallo Bahadir
The overall outcome of this photograph is just magic. The water droplets on the flower add a unique feeling to it. The colours of the petals remind me of purity and cleanliness and displays well against the green leaves. My eyes are always searching for a semi opened flower or unopened bud. It just adds a different perspective to any image containing a flower. I think this is a pretty flower and most off all a pretty photograph.Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
Anna

Interesante trabajo Badahir. Creo que podría mejorarse el ángulo para que la hoja inferior no interfiriera.
Un saludo desde España: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Bahadir,

I like the details captured of this fragile petals with droplets well seen. Very good framing and very well done.

Jusni

Selam Bahadır, bu da estetik bir fotoğraf olmuş. Yılancı adamlarda böyle incelik olurmuydu şaşırdım:). Tebrikler.

Hello Bahadir !
This one is such a lovely flower, it looks frail and fragile, with delicate petals. The droplets of water on it are fantastic, too, and I also like the composition, and the flower stands out nicely on the dark BG. Very well done !
