Waterlily

I really need to start also taking a pic of the ID plates, I don't have a clue which waterlily this is. But it was taken at Chicago Botanic Garden.

Thank you! Here's the original, plus the one I cleaned up and used for the banner (I hate all the floating debris in the water around waterlilies, this one wasn't bad at all though compared to most).

I love waterlilies from when I was a kid and we'd go to a lake for picnics. I'd sneak out on a rowboat to get to them and also to reeds where the damselflies that are iridescent blue and green would be and I'd play with them too. Sadly not something a 7 year old kid could get away with doing in today's world. But I could probably make 50 banners of just various waterlilies! Hilarious!

Something about your composition via cropping really appeals to me in this banner. Great color contrasts, too. Nice work.

Thank you, everyone! I'm really tempted to go through nothing but waterlilies and lotus now to search for more banners, but I think the admin that selects them might get sick of waterlilies! Hilarious!

Nancy, beautiful! Yes, taking pics of the labels is totally worthwhile, IMVHO. People always want to know, what's the name?
