I have always love capturing photos of flowers. Besides the flowers and bees I also took countless shots of the flowers which we saw at the botanic garden at Jeju island, South Korea. The waterlily is one flower which captured my interest.
I first got to view the waterlily when I spotted a pool full of it near the BBQ pork restaurant which we were brought for lunch during the 1 day tour we signed up for.
Doesn’t it look super pretty close up? It looks so refreshing and lovely. I could easily spend time mesmerized in it’s beauty if I had the time.
There were more different varieties of waterlilies in the Botanic gardens. The blooms there too were much larger and certainly equally beautiful. It was a real treat for the eyes being in the garden.
I love the purple of this Star of Siam. It’s patterns on the leaves and the flower itself is very different from the traditional waterlilies which I have seen in ponds.
This yellow bloom didn’t not come out that well as it was hard to adjust the lighting and specs on the camera as the shot was taken in the harsh midday sun. The leaves look more amplified then the bloom itself.
