Lillies not Lotuses.

This is a view across one of the many lakes and ponds at the Blue Lotus Garden that I mentioned in my last post. The Lotus prefer shallow water, so where it's deep, the water is clear of vegetation.
                                              This is a spectacularly coloured Water Lily.
Another Water Lily, the huge and amazing Amazonian Giant Water Lily. The structure of the very large lily pads is such that it can support the weight of a child in the water. The pure white flower only stays open for a short time and we were lucky to see it still open at 10.30 am.
