    Yup, reflections are a feature unique to a waterlily and how it is perceived. Moment by moment it can be changing dramatically.

    Thanks for the kind comments

    Dangnabbit, I keep meaning to try printing a few, thanks for reminding me to go check out a printer.

    Being a bit out in the sticks I tend to make do with posting them online and just ogling them on a monitor.

    Might be tricky choosing
