Water Plants

Maybe because it's now Summer that I'm getting more excited about water plants. The botanical theme has been lasting awhile and it's slowly evolving into a more concentrated interest. I took these photos of water lilies in Shanghai and Suzhou. The leaves and flowers of these plants are so thick and juicy they seem to be made of rubber. And look at those wonderful veiny lines on the underside of the leaves. Aren't those wonderful? I'll have to try playing around with those types of lines.
