A peaceful post and a change of pace from all the insects…but one.
Pink White Water-lily-Nymphaea odorata with a side of Water-lily Leaf Beetle-Galerucella nymphaeae. I didn’t see the beetle until on the display in Lightroom. They are quite common. This was shot at 800mm (the 100-400+2.) TC) so the beetle is about as isolated as it could be as I wasn’t about to wade out there and disturb things had I noticed it.
