Beautiful and Fragrant
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|On my last trip to Southern Italy I was fortunate to spend some time on the Island of Ischia. It is a very green place with lots of plants including aquatic species. |
The water lily, common name for some members of the Nymphaeaceae, a family of freshwater perennial herbs found in most parts of the world and often characterized by large shield-shaped leaves and showy, fragrant blossoms of various colors. Among the plants of the family are the water lilies, lotuses, and pond lilies (called also cow lilies and spatterdocks) of the genera Nymphaea, Nelumbo, and Nuphar, respectively; however, the common names often overlap; e.g., "water lily" is used for most species of the family and even for other unrelated aquatic plants with similar flowers.

I must confess I love Water Lilies and am always surprised at the amount of varieties there are. Very sharp and fine unusual pink tint in this one. Excellent composition.
