I could hardly get near the lily pond at Kew Gardens today for children and buggies. It was a glorious day and the place was packed. But I got this shot of a floating lily - sorry, no idea of the make - but I liked the colours and reflections surrounding it. The brown twiggy thing floating in the b/g is a huge leaf and the spikes on it were about an inch long.

Thanks for dropping by.

And one of the most beautiful captures of surface tension that I have ever seen...
