Lotuses and Lilies
4 of 6 of the New York Botanical Gardens. I like the sculptural form of the lily seed pods. Each one is slightly different. I replaced most of the backgrounds and enhanced my photographs in Photoshop.
I just learned the difference between a lotus and a lily:
- Lotuses belong to the family Nelumbonaceae. The leaves and flowers of a lotus rise above the water’s surface.
- Water lilies belong to the family Nymphaeaceae. The leaves and flowers of a water lily float on the water surface. The leaves of a tropical water lily float on the water surface, but its flowers are about 6-8 inches above the water surface.

2 of 6 of the Bronx Botanical Gardens series. You may notice that I swapped out backgrounds in some of these.
While the weather was hot to hot to enjoy going out I stayed home and worked on the photographs I took in the New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, New York on August 18, 2011. There are so many that I would like to share I will be posting these for six days.
