About Lotus Lily
There a number of species of water lilies in the billabongs and river systems of the Northern Territory. This particular one is known as the Lotus Lily and is found in all the major river systems across the Top End. A challenge to photograph at first light because the petals only last a few days and often by the time i have found one in the right location for an image the light has gone. This particualr one was captured on the tranquil waters of Shady Camp Billabong, Mary River.
