Hi folks!

Another capture from my series of shots from a glorious beauty - A waterlily (Family: Nymphaeaceae), glowing and floating in the pond at a Botanical garden in the German City of Bonn.

I was more than happy to have such a closer glimpse of this eye-catching beauty. A friendly gesture from this lovely flower, motivated me to take some shots of it. So, the result was promising and I got nice shots from this smiling and happy beauty, as it was just glowing for me.

Hope you like this work :)

best greetings,


ISO=100, No changes except cropped and resized for TL.

For me, it was indeed a artwork, displayed by Nature. Therefore, I also added it to the category of Artwork.

dear Paras,
the combination of pale violet and yellow colors are very nice, in this picture of your series of waterlily flowers,
the violet feels noble, and the yellow looks golden shining, both are like the colors of the Queen or Princess in tales,
and the composition is fine too,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Ciao Paras,

This is a fine nature macro shot!
I love the core this flower.
The colours are natural and the presentation is well composed, sharp fine details in the delicate flower...
The green background enhances the subject very well!

I lost the path as this shot attract me so much that I went for the camera by that it was shot, a friend of mine talked about this camera and it has an amazing result but all these need a expert hand to handle, it is well done, TFS.
