|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Nymphaea is a genus of aquatic plants in the family Nymphaeaceae. There are about 50 species in the genus, which has a cosmopolitan distribution.|
The common name, shared with some other genera in the same family, is water-lily or waterlily.
The name Nymphaea comes from the Greek term "Νυμφαία", possibly related to "Νύμφη" meaning "nymph". The nymphs in Greek mythology were supernatural feminine beings associated with springs, so the application of the name to delicately flowered aquatic plants is understandable.

Good composition and lovely flower
Bright vivid colours seen and captured in this water lily. I like the water droplets on the petals of the flower and the sunlight caught adding some shadows as well. It adds a certain speciality to this scene. A very beautiful visual and artistic presentation, which looks like a delicate work of art. The colour is very intense and I very much like the glowing yellow inside the flower.
Agréable publication dans laquelle le sujet est bien mis en valeur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
