Water hyacinth are a free-floating perennial aquatic plant native to tropical and sub-tropical countries, the Philippines included where this image was taken. They have broad, thick, glossy, ovate leaves and may rise above the surface of the water as much as one meter.

    This is so exquisite, Lester. The colors and shapes are beautifully captured, and the three-dimensional feel of it is outstanding.
