Ah, great shot!

John Burgess said...

Is Water Lilly part of the Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals dynasty? Or is she just a lily?

mesquito said...

Too perfect. If you are claiming you took that photo we'll naturally require some proof, Professor.

Interesting shade of blue. Must be a cloudless day up there.

EK said...

Monet would approve.

EK: Monet would approve.

Needs to be more blurry.

Terrye said...

How very pretty.

And then one day things weren't quite so fine
I fell in love with Lily
I asked my dad where Lily I could find
He said, 'Son, now don't be silly'

@John Thanks for the subtle spelling prompt. Corrected.

@EK It's a very un-Monet water lily. Too clear!

@mesquito I know it has an irritating perfect-y look. I apologize! I did take the picture.

I was testing my new monopod.

NYT clarifies DeLay's conduct:

"But many of Mr. DeLay's actions remain legal only because lawmakers have chosen not to criminalize them."

Simply lovely.

That shade of blue is so wonderful. I have trouble naming color shades. What are some guesses as to what that shade would be? Azure, maybe?

This photo warms the cockles of my heart. El loto es mi flor más preferida del mundo. It's everywhere in Egyptian and I suppose that's an obsession.

Why, just yesterday I cranked out a thank-you note that featured them. Care to have a peek?

Chip Ahoy said...

That's Egyptian art.

deborah said...

Neat, Chip.

Taking the time to delurk to congratulate you on a beautiful picture.

BJM said...

So which monopod did you get?

Back on this thread two weeks ago, Saint Croix asked, "Who on the right has attacked civil unions?"

Beth and I gave a couple of examples. Here's another one: Wisconsin Family Action, who have filed a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin's Domestic registry program.

Wow, that shot should win some money.

You make me nostalgic. I put in a lily pond at my former residence for my wife. It looked very nice, but normal lilies close up before 6:00 so we needed to add a night-blooming tropical that I could look at when I got home after work.

Ann Althouse said...

@BJM This one.

I really should get a tripod. I could see that. The monopod is something I want to use as a walking stick on hikes with my little camera stuck on top for the occasional and easy shot.

The big Nikon with a large lens (70-300) was a bit much.
