Lilly Pond

I found this patch of lilies in the Royal Botanic Garden - another example of a picture taken by lying on my stomach in public!  Its at times like this that my family walk away, pretending that they don't know me!


You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM

I do the same, Stewart!
They are beauties. I've never seen water lilies with serrated leaves like these, all of our water lilies have smooth edge leaves or "lily pads." :)

Sylvia K said...

They are quite something. I am convinced that when I see people taking photos from strange angles that they are probably bloggers.

Nice shot! Definitely worth lying down on your stomach to get.

Great shot, I too have family that pretend I'm not with them when I am in the dirt getting a good shot. Have a fantastic week!

wow! those are exploding with color.

Bethany Carson said...

Haha! That is a great shot--thanks for taking the time (and trouble) to show us such beautiful lilies. If any of your family members become photographers/bloggers someday, they'll understand.

Felicia said...

Beautiful capture.

At least one of them should have stayed to help :>)

CountryMouse said...

Laying down, now why don't I do that rather that the awkward crouching that sometimes looks like I am doing something else you shouldn't in public. Lovely lilies.

Beautiful photos of the lilies.
I recognize the situation on the ground.
Let people think.

Gunilla Bäck said...

They're gorgeous! My family does the same thing. :-)

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Haha, my family does that to me too (except my 14 year old son who loves to take photos too and he gets it!). That's a BEAUTIFUL photo, Stewart!

DeniseinVA said...

So pretty! How I love waterlilies and yours are gorgeous! I actually have some birds this week so will be back later to sign up for WWW :)

DeniseinVA said...

I guess that should be WBW ;)

Mary Hone said...

LOL...It is fun to get THE shot, isn't it. Gorgeous photo too.

Linda M. Carmean said...

Had to laugh about your family's reaction! :-) Lovely shot. Definitely worth it!

Mama Zen said...

Ha! My family does that, too.

TexWisGirl said...

no WBW link-up today? :)

Andrea said...

It is a beautiful shot, at least to us you did a good job, despite your family's abandonment, hahaha! That is the reason it is always lovely to travel with photo hobbyists. They all do amusing and unusual things!
