You have surely blessed my day! That link opened to a photo of the same flower I photographed near Narragansett, RI. I knew it was the same flower when I saw that there was a hard brownish looking growth that almost resembles a shower head in the foreground. When the flowers fall off, the "shower head" on a stem is what remains. Thank you so very much.

And per your request, I grant you permission to use the photo of my discovery of "Nelumbo nucifera" AKA "Sacred Water Lily" on your website. It was discovered in August, while my wife and I were vacationing in Rhode Island. Much of my time while on vacation is spent looking for natural images to photograph.

That particular morning, was proving to be a total washout, nothing was catching my eye; when at last I passed the little grotto where the lilies were growing. I shot dozens of angles, but I was concerned because it was near noon, and the worst time of the day to take pictures is when the sun is high.

So, you guessed it; the next morning, I got up early and drove about 15 miles to return to the site of the "Sacred Water Lilies", which for me, capturing that photo came close to being a sacred event, So, by all means, please use the photograph. In fact, I am attaching another lily from the same site, feel free to use either or both.

You have been a great help and blessing.

Peace, Ken
