'Peach Glow' Water-lily
Nymphaea sp.

When I visited Lalbagh last time could not find any butterfly, surprise. I found this hybrid of water lily with lovely colors and captured under cloudy conditions. There are few hybrid varieties of water-lilies grown separately in huge water tanks and to avoid being plucked it was fenced. I could reach this one with my macro lens but hand held. Hope you like its colors.

Hello Nagaraj,
The delicate peach colour of this hybrid water lily flower makes it rather unusual.
The POV, composition sharpness and natural colours add to the quality of this image with the little fly on one of the petals as a bonus1
Thanks and all the best,

Delicadeza del conjunto y gran belleza y contrastes con esas tonalidades.
