I have seen many water lilies amongst my travels, but have never seen one this perfect.

This particular flower peeked out at me when I least expected it to. Also being the smallest of its type that I have ever spotted, I would have walked right by it if it wasn’t for the frog that had leapt off a pad as I had approached.  

At first I just stood looking at it for I was amazed by its flawlessness. But then, time had snuck away and I realized that I must move on.

  1. absolutely beautiful shot Janet. I am always amazed that in the center of a swamp such beauty comes from it.
