Water Lily

Somehow I've managed to miss going to St Petersburg's Sunken Gardens until today.  What a great place to visit, even a couple of days before the onset of a Florida winter.  It was about 80 degrees with a mild breeze blowing.  I took this shot of a water lily in moving water.  That's usually a recipe for a blurred water lily.  I tried to time the swaying of the lily to get the shot when it reached one extreme of it's travel and paused before moving back in the opposite direction.  I kept the shutter speed just low enough to get a sense of motion in the water.  I like the result.
