Water lilly reflected, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Given the backlog of stuff I’ve got at the moment I figured a Wednesday posting might be in order,  even if it’s not a “weird Wednesday” type subject or treatment.  Waterlillies are a common sight on the channels and lagoons of the Okavango Delta.    The choice of such a long lens may seem a bit odd for a botanical subject such as this,  however in this instance it worked out well.    I was in a small boat as we meandered along the channels near Kwetsani camp when I observed this flower reflected in the still waters.
