[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nymphaea nouchali, commonly known as the Red and blue water lily, Blue star water lily, Star lotus, or by its synonym Nymphaea stellata, is a water lily of genus Nymphaea.
he Red and blue water-lily is used as an ornamental plant because of its spectacular flowers. It is also popular as an aquarium plant under the name "Dwarf Lily" or "Dwarf Red Lily". Sometimes it is grown for its flowers, while other aquarists prefer to trim the lily pads, and just have the underwater foliage.
Nymphaea nouchali is considered a medicinal plant in Indian Ayurvedic medicine under the name Ambal; it was mainly used to treat indigestion. Recent experiments have confirmed that it has medicinal qualities as an antihepatotoxic and antidiabetic. Like all waterlilies or lotuses, its tubers and rhizomes can be used as food items; they are eaten usually boiled or roasted. In the case of the Red and blue water-lily, its tender leaves and flower peduncles are also valued as food.

The one in the picture is a variety of Indian red water lily, in a nearby water body, shot from a distance, because of the depth.

Bonjour Ramkumar,
L'image manque un peu de netteté mais la composition, avec la réflexion, est bonne ; excellente opposition des couleurs faisant bien ressortir, sous une belle lumière, le sujet principal.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
