Steven,

This is something divine. I swear I thought you had brought with a sharp razor to slice off the top of the flower's ripe ovary. But I guess, that is the plant's natural landing platform for pollinating insects!

Hey Steven,

This is something really great. The focus on the flower as well as the top of the flower center is really great.

Steven,

These are so special. I have not seen other water lilies as pretty except by Monet!





You have done a splendid job!

Monet, for those who do not know, actually imported his Water Lilies from South A,erica and elsewhere and defied the local authorites who were afraid it would pos the local water supply. He photographed his water lilies for the next 30 years, (and the Japanese bridge he built, 17 times a year in different light)! More here!

But these I remembered and had to search for and at last I found them again and I am very happy!

Asher
