During our trek out in the woods, we came across many small ponds with different kinds of water lilies, and plenty of lily pads.
I was surprised at the different varieties of lily pads and lily flowers we found in one day.
I have no idea of their names, but here is what we found:
First, this big white water lily beauty:
Here is a better picture of it's pretty yellow center:
I loved the reds, yellows and greens of its surrounding lily pads, too:
And a white one that just popped up from under the water too:
I love the huge green seed pod in the middle of this white water lily!:
One was in the shadows, and really had an interesting seed pod in its center, too:
Pretty and waxy yellow water lilies, too:
Here is a closeup of their interesting centers:
