I have been waiting since Seven for you to upload, and I was not disappointed. A beautifully composed and captured photograph, the yellow hues working beautifully against the black backdrop.

Well hello! Hope you had a great day yesterday...
Your frog would be the only creature who could handle a flood... (or is it a tree frog?) Hope all is OK for you and that it didn't stop you having a fun day... It's so miserable to get everything wet... We used to get flooded in my previous house in Portugal. (too close to the river)... Eventually we moved. But I still miss that river.
Your image is simply stunning. You have a gift to get them in such beautiful poses... Grin Well seen. IB

The yellow of the flower grabs the attention first, then the star of the show peeps out from its centre, like a rabbit out of a top hat, and the little frog's colours blend so beautifully with the lily.
