After seeing Virginia's pond lilly, which I thought was excellent, I thought I would post one that I took yesterday. Usually, the middle of a bright sunny day is not a good time for flowers, but it is for pond lillies. A polarizer helped.

Greg,
Thanks for the comments and yes I am close enough. I think the Air and Water Show would be a great idea.

Yes they only come out around 10 am and go to sleep early.. No choice in sunlight for sure.

Thanks to both Franks.

The shot It was taken at the Chicago Botanical Garden, which is a 385 Acre botanical wonderland just north of Chicago. I actually consider the shot almost cheating because its just from one of the many ponds in their entrance area, almost like trout fishing in a well stocked artificial pond at an outdoor show. I like the colors of this particular shot, but the polarizer helped.
