h2o lily.

the water lily at dawn . . .

the same water lily at dusk.

this was at our dock in vermont. water lily flowers are beautifully showy and fragrant and they last only a few days. some open during the day and close at night, others do the opposite. this one did the former (did you know that most water lilies are pollinated by beetles?). i think they are simply magnificent.
