First & last Water Lily....

O.K., so there's only one but it's the first one I've gotten this year and most likely the last. I was Sooo happy to find this! :)

That is beautiful I can see why you were so happy to find it. You did a wonderful job on it. I have never had the opportunity to shoot a water lily.

Thank you so much Lila, I've seen a bunch of them this summer but it's been impossible to get to them. They are so beautiful, I hope you get a chance to see one soon. :)

Lovely. Now you know where they live, next summer will be the "Year of the Water Lily" for you.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

Of course you would find one. Like chocolate and peanut butter. You two go together.

Not to steal your thread, but thought you'd like this. A combined music piece from 12 countries:



"Every once in a while humans do something that proves our existence worthwhile, that puts the lie to 'we should just go away and the planet would be a better place.' We can be together from everywhere in song and and the beauty of it. Proves a point does it not. I am old as humans go my brief span on this planet will soon be gone. This gives me some solace as to the future of humanity. Thank you Eric Whitacre and company we all thank you. God Bless you and keep you all."
